Choosing Blueberries Varieties
Growing blueberries from seed can be an easy process, but it's important to choose the right varieties, as not all of them are well-suited for seed propagation.
This native North American variety is known for its small, sweet berries and compact growth habit. It's also relatively tolerant of a wider range of soil conditions compared to other blueberry types. Seeds germinate readily and the plants start producing fruit in 2 to 3 years.
A hybrid between lowbush and highbush blueberries, this variety offers the best of both worlds. It produces larger berries than lowbush blueberries while still being more compact than highbush varieties. Seeds germinate moderately well and plants typically start fruiting in 3 to 4 years.
Sunshine Blue blueberry
This early-ripening highbush blueberry variety is known for its large, sweet berries and abundant yields. While seeds may germinate slower than other varieties, the wait is worth it for the delicious fruits. Plants typically start fruiting in 4 to 5 years.
Pink Lemonade blueberry
This unique variety produces berries that start out pink and ripen to a light lavender color. The berries have a refreshing, slightly tart flavor. Seeds germinate moderately well and plants typically start fruiting in 3 to 4 years.
