SHARPBLUE: A Southern highbush. Specifically picked for general Phoenix Area by our Dave Wilson rep. Excellent flavor. Nearly evergreen in mild winter climates. Bears fruit nearly year-round. Vigorous plant to 6 ft. Dime-sized dark blue fruit.

CAUTION - this is a heads-up that this product is an experiment in the Valley of the Sun. We have heard of people being successful with blueberries and by following the directions below this will significantly increase your chances of success.

To make growing blueberries easier, do NOT plant them in the ground!! Blueberries make a wonderful container plant and are ornamental as well as productive.

Blueberries like a low PH of 4.5 to 6.0, with 5.5 being optimal, and they like to grow in actively decomposing organic matter.  Soil sulfur needed to achieve 4.5 pH (in teaspoons per cubic foot of soil mix). Check carefully when selecting fertilizers: the nitrogen must not be from nitrate, which can be deadly to blueberries (don't find out the hard way!)

Check out this link on Dave Wilson's website for more detailed info - 

So here is what you need to know about blueberries before you press the go button. They are experimental and you will need to grow them in a pot. Here are your directions:

  • The soil in your pot needs to be:
    • 1/3 peat
    • 1/3 ground forest bark
    • 1/3 of a porous media - pearllite, pumice or sand based potting soil
  • Use a Humic Acid based fertilizer Tom likes the product called Gro Power Flower & Bloom 3-12-12.
  • Feed your Blueberries every two months (Feb, April, June, Aug, Oct).
  • They need to be containerized in a large container of at least 30 gallon capacity.
  • Put all 3 varieties in 1 container.
  • MUST be well drained and must kept acidic!
  • Partial shade to most sun with shade in the mid to late afternoon.
