Two excellent varieties, ‘Pink Sapphire’ is a uniquely coloured variety bred in the USA and ‘Aurora’ is one of the latest varieties with large, dark fruits cropping well into September.
Pink Sapphire - Yes, a blueberry that is positively pink. This variety has been bred in the USA and we are the first to secure a limited supply for D.T. Brown gardeners. The fruits start at a pale greenish colour, then to dappled pink and finally a deep pink on ripening. Deliciously sweet berries are great eaten fresh or add a novel colour to desserts. As with most blueberries, Pink Lemonade not only yields flavour-full fruit but is also a highly ornamental addition to the garden with showy pink-white flowers in spring and autumn leaves that turn golden yellow and then bright orange. The plants are self-pollinating. Aurora - Our recommendation for a very late variety - late August and September. A very dark coloured large berry which must be picked when it is fully ripe to get the best from it - a rich, all-round tart flavour which jazzes up the breakfast cereal! The strong growing plants are highly productive.
