Sweet Blueberries - All Summer Long

BrazelBerries Peach Sorbet Blueberry Bush is a new introduction for 2013 and it is one of the most acclaimed fruiting shrubs we carry. Unlike traditional blueberry bushes which grow tall, leggy, and need to be staked - these grow into a compact shrub. Perfect for container growing. The bigger the container, the bigger your harvest.

Traditional blueberries can have some tart, bitter flavors if picked too soon...not the Peach Sorbet! These berries taste like a combination of a homemade peach cobbler infused with traditional, sweet blueberries. This blueberry is a favorite with our nursery staff and will likely be your favorite as well. It produces a delicious, large berry with a great texture.

Not only is this plant unique in the amazing flavor that it produces, but it also has very unique foliage. Leaf colors range from a pinkish yellow in the spring, to dark green in the summer, and then in the fall and winter the leaves turn a dark shade of purple. This berry will keep its leaves through winter so it does not look like other blueberry bushes that look like dead twigs.

We have a limited selection of these blueberries, and they will not last. Make sure you pick yours up as soon as possible, so you can begin enjoying healthy, anti-oxidant rich blueberries... right in your own back yard!

It's Easy to Plant your BrazelBerries Peach Sorbet Blueberry Bush

Specific Directions for BrazelBerries Peach Sorbet Blueberry Bush

Your Blueberry bushes will thrive in an area that receives full to partial sunlight. The more sunlight that your bushes get, the more fruit they'll produce as long as they are in a well drained area of your yard, that doesn't collect any standing water.

Acidic soil with a pH balance ranging from 4.09 to 5.5 will be best for your Blueberry Bushes. Use a pH meter to measure the acidity of your soil and add sulfur or Peat Moss to increase your soil's acidity level.

Fertilize your Blueberry Bushes early every Spring, as your Bushes emerge from winter dormancy and flower. Midsummer after you harvest your Blueberries fertilize your bushes again. Use an organic fertilizer for an acid loving shrub.

Your Blueberries won't be ready to be picked until their stems appear blue, not red or green. Once your Blueberries are ripe they will be a dusty dark blue color.


Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your BrazelBerries Peach Sorbet Blueberry Bush.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.



Step 2 - Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your BrazelBerries Peach Sorbet Blueberry Bush gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3 - Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your BrazelBerries Peach Sorbet Blueberry Bush again after the transplant is complete.

To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.

These blueberry bushes arrived fast and in fantastic condition! They were beautiful! I transferred them to a slightly bigger pot and that was when I realized that both of the Peach Sorbet Blueberry Bushes I purchased were completely lopsided. I hope as they mature they will even out and fill the container nicely like they do in the pictures shown. That is the only reason why I am giving them 4 stars instead of 5. They are already producing big, juicy, delicious blueberries and I have only had them for a month! Amazing

Really Fun Plant!
I got my Peach Sorbet Blueberry Bush in the spring about four months ago. It was a good size but lopsided and a little scraggly, like the branches had been shaved down for shipping. However, it was healthy with many blueberries already ripe on it. New growth grew back quickly. It is still a little lopsided, but I know that with how fast it is growing, it will fill out in no time. It is also a really fun plant to watch. It likes to change colors with the seasons. Most importantly, the blueberries taste WONDERFUL!

Do I need two of the Peach Sorbet Blueberry bush for it to bear fruits?
Gilda B on Jun 12, 2014
Best Answer: I have 2 but I think they will bear fruit on their own. Mine are bearing fruit now, planted in October 2013 (zone 7). 1 alone will not yield much fruits because of their dwarf size, but they're great producers considering how small they are!

do you have a nursery close to the border of California?
William B on Jul 21, 2014
Best Answer: No we're located in South Carolina. However we safely package our plants by wrapping the roots to create a mini greenhouse effect that supplies our plants with water and nutrients during transit. We ship plants to California daily and they safely make the trip.

Will my Trees and Shrubs Look Like the Photographs?

Most trees and plants on the website are pictured in their mature form. Depending on the product and growth rate, mature development can take years for your plant to resemble the photos.

Picture the last time you took a walk in the woods. The young trees were not miniature bonsai versions of mature trees. Instead they were naturally thin and lanky. Young trees are programmed to race toward the light, before the competing vegetation crowds them out. Once established at 10 feet or more, they start developing a wide canopy and shedding lower limbs.

Bare Root trees are shipped without dirt or any green foliage showing. Some customers who have never planted bare root before, think that they received a "dead stick" with roots. These dormant trees are basically sleeping over the winter as most trees do. Because of their hibernation-like stage, this is a great way to transplant these trees. Since a bare root tree lacks foliage, they need very little moisture.


Most Trees and Shrubs are Pruned Before Shipping... at No Cost to You

Pruning makes plants appear to be less-full than the ones you may have seen at your local big box garden center. A retailer's goal is to have plants look their best while sitting in the store. Our goal is to have them look the best after you plant them.

Pruned trees and shrubs not only travel better, but become established much quicker. So rather than supporting extra foliage, they put their energy into sending out deep roots. Once that happens, your plants become hardier and quickly explode with new top growth. Above the ground, pruning helps your plants develop a more attractive form.
