Huge Amounts of Fruit from a Small Container Plant

Sweet Blueberries - All Summer Long

Bushel and Berry™ 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!

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!

My BrazelBerries Peach Sorbet Blueberry Bush arrived in perfect health and with delicious blueberries already on it! Others have already asked me where I purchased it. Thank you for a wonderful healthy blueberry bush!

Review Title
We ordered 2 bushes,1 of them was doing beautifully and just died. The other is growing much more slowly but has shown steady foliage progress but very sparse berries. We had to search the internet for growing instructions as there was only a generic transplanting sheet shipped with the bushes.

Brazelberry Blueberry bush
I planted the blueberry bush a month or so ago in a 5 gallon bucket with drainage holes. It appears to be making good growth so far. The homemade potting soil I used is 2 parts peat moss, two parts coir and one part perlite. I plan to replant the bush in its final larger container in a year or two depending on its growth. I will provide a further evaluation at that time.

started to grow. All of the leaves have fallen off one of the stems.. It had two stems on it .. when it arrived. So.. am waiting
to see what happens.

Beautiful Bushes
My Blueberry bushes arrived in great condition and I placed them in very large planters on a landing on my front stairs. They received full sunlight all day. They have adapted well, being planted in July!! I've watered them well every few days and recently added some soil acidifier pellets around the base of each plant. One plant has already added a couple of new leaves. I'm pleased as I've only had them a few weeks. I think they will do well. We have had an unusually wet July and August here in Tennessee!! It is raining as I write this on Aug. 6!! I'm looking forward to getting some blueberries!!

Planting & Care



It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Bushel and Berry™ Peach Sorbet™ Blueberry


Bushel and Berry™ Peach Sorbet™ Blueberry Planting Diretions

The Blueberry is a deciduous shrub. The leaves are spirally arranged, narrow, and start out red-bronze in the spring only to develop into a dark-green. The flowers of the Blueberry are white, and bell-shaped. The fruit is a berry, which is dark blue to black, and has a thin wax coating.

Seasonal information: Blueberries are grown as an ornamental plant for its fall colors, typically bright orange or red. It is also a highly regarded "super food", containing beneficial vitamins and nutrients.

Location: When selecting a site to plant your Blueberry bush, make sure the site has full sun and drains well. The plant grows best in moist soil, not in soggy soil. Blueberry plants require acidic, well-draining soil. When planted in soils with a pH higher than 5.5, blueberry plants do not absorb nutrients adequately and become more susceptible to disease. Blueberry plants contract moisture-related diseases when exposed to humid conditions or standing water.

Planting instructions: Dig a hole with the shovel that is about twice the size of the root ball of the bush. Make sure the hole is the same depth as the container it comes in. When planting more than one blueberry bush, dig holes that are at least five feet apart in rows that are 10 feet apart. Amend the soil from the hole with peat moss. Make sure to thoroughly mix the peat moss with the soil from the hole. Place the Blueberry bush in the hole. Cover the roots with soil-peat moss mix.

Watering: Your blueberry bushes will need to be watered regularly to make certain that the root system becomes well established. The soil surrounding your tree should be moist, but never saturated. Light green leaves can be a sign of over watering, while drooping leaves can be a sign of both over or under watering.

Fertilization: You do not need to fertilize the Blueberry bush at the time of planting. Fertilize the Blueberry bush twice a year, once in the spring and once after harvest.

Weed Control: Hand-pull weeds near the blueberry shrubs. You can damage the shallow root system with garden tools.

Pests and Disease: Blueberries grow best in acidic soil and are subject to few pests and diseases. The Blueberries are not self-fertile, so two compatible varieties should be planted next to each other to maintain growth and fruiting. If maintained with mulching, the berries can handle temperatures as low as 10 degrees Fahrenheit. Blueberries can mature to the height of three to six feet with a width of up to three feet. The plant has few insect or disease problems; however, birds and squirrels are prone to eating them.

Pruning: Blueberries require only minimal pruning. Lower limbs can be thinned out to keep the fruit from touching the soil, and excessively vigorous upright shoots can be thinned out several feet from the ground to keep the center of the bush open, and to keep the bearing surface within reach. Spindly, weak, or dead branches should be thinned out annually during the dormant season.

Pollination: Blueberries are not self-fertile and must have two or more varieties to pollinate each other. Honeybees are inefficient pollinators, and carpenter bees frequently cut the corollas to rob nectar without pollinating the flowers. Blueberries do best when pollinated by buzz pollination by bees, such as the native southeastern blueberry bee.

I Love Blueberries. But the native ones here are scattered about. hard to find, hard to check for ripeness, and hard to pick. This will be potted and close to the house. Easy to check and care for.

I have two of these Peach Sorbet Blueberry bushes and they seem to be getting eaten alive by beetles! I plan on growing these organically, do you have any suggestions on how to get rid of these pests?

Can you keep these and the Brazil raspberry in a pot outside all winter, or do they need to be brought inside? I live in michigan
Peggy T on Jul 11, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It looks like you are in a zone 5 so they should be able to stay outside during the winter. If you are having rather harsh winter I would advise to take indoors.
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!
What is the cold hardiness of this plant? Will it tolerate temperatures of -20 degrees?
A shopper on Jul 26, 2014
BEST ANSWER: BrazelBerries® Peach Sorbet Blueberry Bushes can withstand winter temperatures in zones 5 - 10.
