Self-pollinating Perpetua will produce 2 crops of fruit: one in July, then another in September-October on new growth. While many blueberries will produce a smattering of fruit in fall, Perpetua produces a nice-size crop! Berries are small, firm and mild-tasting. The plant is nicely compact with pretty glossy leaves and works great in pots. Blueberries require acidic, well-drained soil and full sun for best performance. For heavier clay soils, the addition of soil sulfur helps to lower the pH while shredded pine or pine fines will improve aeration and drainage. Self-pollinating, but will produce even more fruit if planted near a different blueberry variety for cross-pollination.
