You have found it -- the most exciting new plant of the season, guaranteed to delight gardeners in all climates! This Vaccinium hybrid is nothing short of a pink Blueberry, and it can be yours now!

The quintessential ornamental edible, 'Pink Lemonade' offers year-round beauty for the sunny border! In spring, the glossy green foliage is dotted with small, sweetly fragrant shell-pink blooms. By May in most climates, the first crop of berries is dotting this dense, well-branched shrub. The mid-sized fruit begins pale green, then gradually blushes pink before ripening to a deep rosy shade.

Glossy and firm, the fruit has a mild, sweet bite. Successive crops arise on this Highbush until mid-fall, by which point the foliage has begun turning from green to yellow, gold, and finally brilliant reddish-orange. Even in winter, russet-red bare stems keep 'Pink Lemonade' interesting.

Grow 'Pink Lemonade' as you would any other blueberry, in well-drained, enriched acidic soil that remains consistently moist. It is self-fertile, so you need plant only one. (It looks great in pairs, though!) Zones 4-9. Cannot ship to CA, MI, OR, WA.

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.
