I was very pleased with the Chandler blueberry plants. You also carry a good assortment of seeds, and I appreciate the foil packets you use.
The fruit on this blueberry is truly huge, but I have not been impressed with the flavor. If picked when fully ripe, there is sweetness but little classic blueberry flavor; if picked just one day too soon they are too sour. There is no in-between, it seems. I much prefer the flavor of Sunshine Blue. Chandler does, however, make a handsome bush.
How many years before fruiting plants bear their first crop?
For fruiting plants such as blueberry, raspberry, blackberry, fig, honeyberry, cranberry, and grape, it takes 2 years to bear the first crop. That does not mean you may not get some fruit before then. Depending on the size and maturity of the plant shipped, you may get at least a few pieces of fruit or a small quantity produced the first year. But, by the second year, you should have your first real crop of fruit to enjoy and fruit production will increase every year thereafter.
