Flavor and looks. I saw these on a visit to your Louisiana, MO nursery. Reading varietal info online confirmed my initial impression
EDWARD W on Jul 30, 2018
Taste described on pink lemonade blueberry was different from the standard blueberry.
JOSHUA N on Jul 26, 2018
This is my second Pink Lemonade blueberry. It replaces one that didn't thrive in the hot Texas heat. I'm going to relocate the huge pot I put it in so it is shaded from the west afternoon sun to see if that works better. Blueberries grow in Texas, plus I have special soil to grow it in, so I am determined!!
CAROL F on Jul 8, 2018
I enjoy the color of the foliage,
The flavor of the Pink Lemonade Blueberry is unique and very delicious.
Michael S on Jul 6, 2018
The harvest time will flow well into August. I have another plant (Northblue blueberry) with the harvest time in mid July. I want fruit all year!

Cliff H on May 31, 2016
Because my little girl loves pink and she loves fruit. We have a couple of blue blueberry bushes already but I thought this would be fabulous and put a smile on my 5 year old daughters face. Thanks for offering it.

Hoping to have my own fresh Pink Blueberries to pick and watch grow along with my apple and banana tree.

Love standard fruits/vegetables with different colors (i.e., yellow raspberries, purple carrots, pink blueberries).
Byron B on Apr 8, 2016

I want to plant 'Pink Lemonade' and see it is self pollinating. Will it also serve as a pollinator for other varieties such as Patriot?
christine on Mar 22, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it is able to pollinate itself as well as other blueberry plants.
What are the pros/cons between 4" pot and 1 gallon container, especially with regard to time to bear fruit?
Debby on Apr 16, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The 1 gallon has a better chance to survive and it will bare fruit usually in the 1st year. Larry.
Hi, I see that you can use this bush as an added pollinator. Will it change the taste of the berries if it cross pollinates with other berries?
Kelly L on Jul 29, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. The only time cross-pollination affects the flavor of edibles is if you harvest the seed from this year's crop and plant it next year, but that doesn't apply here. So the simple answer is no, using another variety to pollinate a blueberry bush will not affect the flavor, only the yield, which will be bigger.
My soil is clay and alkaline. I've always planted blueberries in pots to avoid soil pitfalls. Is it better to plant in pots instead of alkaline soils or will heavy mulching counteract?
maria r on Oct 18, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Im not exactly sure what a soil pitfall is but your pretty good in a container just make sure your ph is around 5. Alkaline is 7 or higher. Most mulch is slightly acidic often not enough you may need sulfur to lower the ph further with extra compost amended into/ onto the clay for a future planting it will take time to break down the sulfur but the organic material will help retain moisture and microbes longer aiding in its break down I would start plants in containers for a couple years work and prepare the soil in mean time depending on how high your ph is currently as well as how much organic matter you have in your soil aside from the mentioned mulch. It could take years to get the soil ph to go down there's a variety of factors that influence it but you want the soil as alive as possible and quick drainage/not ponding after watering Ideally you want a bed of prepared soil/media according to the specifications of your intended crop before you plant in the ground if your soil is right for said plant it would be better to plant in the ground for more consistent moisture and aeration.
Can you eat the fruit?
Sue M on Apr 14, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it's just a different kind of blueberry. They're delicious, I have one at home. :-)
Does this plant do well in containers?
Brittany M on Mar 11, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Brittany, Both of my pink blueberry's are in large flower pots and doing great. They do get large, so pick a pot with that in mind.
how soon do you get berry's?
Craig on May 1, 2019
BEST ANSWER: You will get a few berries the first year, and many more the second/third years.
does pink blueberry grow in container?
aziz g on Mar 1, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it will grow very well in a container. Just make sure the soil pH is between 4.5 and 5.0.
Is this a GMO?
Eli D on Jul 6, 2019
BEST ANSWER: None of our trees, plants or seeds are GMO.
How many chill hours does the pink lemonade blueberries need?
Ann H on Jun 17, 2019

Will the one gallon size pink lemonade blueberry plants produce quicker than the ones in the 4 inch pot?
Michelle H on Feb 20, 2019

What color are they when ripe? I have pink and blue fruit on it.
Cindy G on Jul 6, 2018

I started out with 2 plants and after tasting the 1st crops berries, I am hooked on the pinks! I find them more flavorful than the blues and they are very sweet. I ordered 8 more plants, sending 2 off to the little grand kids for their garden, keeping 6 for myself. I know when the grand kid visit they will be picking my berries.

Pink Lemonade Perfection
Out of the 10+ varieties of blueberries i grow, Pink Lemonade blueberries have the best flavor. They seem to have a sweet blueberry taste with a hint of kiwi. They are great! These easy-to-grow bushes have a dense willow leaf appearance and turn a brilliant pink in the fall. Berries are white, pink, or mixed white and pink. They are ripe when they lose any hint of green. I highly recommend Pink Lemonade blueberries. The FuNNy FarM

Pink Lemonade
The plants were extremely small so at least another 1-2 years before harvest most likely. I thought for the price it was not very much value.

do not freeze well
These are very tasty, grow quickly and are easy to care for. Much sweeter than regular blueberries. But you cannot freeze them. The skin does not hold up so you wind up with a bowl of tasty mush. I would recommend these to anyone. I did not care for them only because of the freezing issue. I gave them to some one who loved them.

I sell blueberries, and have wanted some new additions. I've had these plants about a year now and I'm pleased with their progress. Excited about these new plants!

Hardier than other blues.
This plant arrives as a PLANT, not a freeze-dried looking root ball, like I've gotten elsewhere. I over watered all my plants that spring, but it survived and grew well anyway. It doesn't taste much different from regular blueberries, but I am extremely pleased.

Can't wait to see.
This is the second year for this blueberry bush. I am expecting a nice yield.
The bush is healthy and strong so I know it will do well. I can't wait to see the yield
I get this year.

Growing very well
I have had this through two winters and it is growing nicely. This is the first time it has a couple of flowers on it. I cannot wait to taste the berries.

Doing well growing nicely
My Pink Lemonade Blueberries are doing well. I got them Jellybean and Summer Sunset Blueberries to pollinate them. I did not allow them to produce berries this year and may not next year. The important thing is to plant them well in plenty of good soil with peat moss and compost (the ph has to be low). I only used cottonseed meal 6-1-1 to start them off. They are pretty just as a bush, but will love to see and taste their fruit.

Neat Berry
This will be the first full season with them in the ground. They spent last summer in bigger pots healed into a nursery garden. They doubled in size and produced a few berries. Nice berries. Medium size, sweet. I look forward to cooking up a pink pie and some pink preserves.

Set them out at the end of winter in a new berry bed with a dozen other blueberries from Stark, bought and nursed in the same batch. Three of each variety for good pollination and a buffer for attrition. This is our third large berry bed. Can't have enough blueberries.

The Pink Lemonade was a much earlier starter, pushing out leaves and blooms 2 weeks earlier than the blue varieties. We are on the Ozark Plateau, zone 6 surrounded by 7. 1200' amsl.
