Pink Lemonade Blueberry Plant
Pink Lemonade blueberry was developed in the 1970s by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. But when researchers brought it to blueberry growers, they were convinced because of its distinctive yellowish-pink fruit that gardeners wouldn't buy it, thinking it an unripe blueberry. If blueberry 'Pink Lemonade' was grown at all then, it was typically for its ornamental value as a late-season bush.
Fast-forward to the 2000s: Growing research into the power of cancer-fighting antioxidants as well as the popularity of backyard gardens have gardeners looking for something new and different. That's led to a surge in popularity of blueberry 'Pink Lemonade'.
In spring, blueberry 'Pink Lemonade' blooms with small, bell-shape, pinkish to white flowers. About mid- to late summer, those flowers begin to set as fruit, but unlike some blueberry plants, 'Pink Lemonade' doesn't set fruit all at once. It generally produces one larger first crop and then more fruit continuously until about October.
'Pink Lemonade' is definitely sweeter—about two times as much—than a regular blueberry, which means it's good eaten fresh, in desserts, or as a garnish. The fruit begins as a green color and then turns white, then a lighter pink, finally aging to a darker pink. Ready-to-harvest clusters may still be green on the undersides.
