I figured, but you struck a chord, as I've been looking at this kit the last couple days. No 'real' blueberries in there that I know of.

We have 9 different varieties on our 45 acre farm. We planted one pink lemonade bush but it hasn't done that great.

Yeah we lost 75% of our crop last year. Hoping we have a better year this year but our O'Neal varieties are already halfway bloomed out. It's frosted the last 3 mornings after a week of it being 80-90 here in Eastern NC

I've never used kits to make wine, I've heard mixed reviews from friends that have used them so I've never tried them
