Sweet, LARGE berries and beautiful fall color
Dan O. from KY wrote on July 06, 2019

Grew in containers for two years and planted in the ground in spring of 2017 in a well prepared raised bed. Had to acidify the soil using sulfur, lots of peat and leaf compost but it was well worth the extra time and effort. I have seven other varieties of blueberry including Jelly Bean, Pink Icing, North Country, North Blue, Legacy, BluRay and Mini Blues. Peach Sorbet produces the largest berries by far (nickel size is common!) and the taste is sweeter than most with a moderately firm flesh. When fully ripe the flesh is somewhat softer than some of the other varieties. The growth habit is upright with most of the berries in clusters at the tips of the branches so picking is easier. Some of the clusters had 20+ berries that ripened over a period of two weeks or so. I netted the raised bed after the bees had pollinated the flowers using the Big Bug Netting to keep out not only the birds who would gobble up the fruit in no time, but to also keep out the Japanese beetles and green June Beetles. Netting is a necessity in my area! ;) Peach Sorbet does seem to hold onto its leaves longer than my other blueberries. They turn a beautiful deep burgundy-purple before finally dropping in early January which is when it’s the coldest here (zone 6b KY). Overall I would highly recommend this variety for its very large, abundant sweeter fruit that are easy to pick, it’s vigorous upright but compact growth habit and its excellent fall colors. The only negatives I can think of are that it does tend to sucker so requires some minor maintenance in that regard, and the flavor while sweet and complex isn’t as strong or intense as some of the other varieties. Don’t let either of those put you off though, this is definitely a winner!
