How does the taste of Bushel and Berry TM taste compared to Sweetheart Blueberries?
Pam M on Feb 5, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Sweetheart blueberries, are sweet, juicy and firm; Perpetua is a little less sweet, with a milder flavor.
I am planning an edible hedge / foundation planting using the eye catching appeal and habitat value of blueberries. WHAT SIZE is the BUSHEL & BERRY PERPETUA?
-- Ellie Rusling, Rochester GC
Ellie - ROC on Feb 2, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Petpetua will grow to be 4-5' tall and 3-4' wide. Hope that helps with your planning! Be sure you located the bushes in slightly acidic soil (pH of 4.5 to 5.5) or amend the soil before you plant. It is well worth doing ... you will be rewarded with many more blueberries.
