Has anyone ever tried to make wine using Pink Lemonade Blueberries? I have been thinking of putting in a few bushes on my Blueberry farm as a expirement but if someone has already tried it and it didn't work I don't want to waste the field space.
Interesting that you would say that. I just got home from a run to the local nursery - investigating European Plum trees. After a lengthy talk with the lady at the nursery, including that I make wine from fruit including blueberries.... she showed me her stock of blueberries including Pink Lemonade Blueberries. I have a plant or two that died last year so I bought 1 Pink Lemonade to grow. While it's a nice sized bush, it will take at least 2-3 years before it might produce enough for a gallon batch.
Will be waiting to see if anyone has tried them yet.[/QUOTE
My aunt got my grandfather a bush right after we finished planting out blueberry farm for him to try but it hasn't done really well. I would love to see if they done well and if they make good wine I would consider putting in several acres of them.
You mean this?
I have 5 different varieties of blueberrys but none of these I'll have to check into this.
I'm more interested in wine made from the Pink Lemonade Blueberries, these look more like wine coolers made with regular blueberries.
Nursery where I got mine had 3 of them all in 2 gallon containers for $15.00 with tax. (Same size plant that Lowe's sells for $22.00 Nice sized for the money. Might just have to go back an get another. I think I lost a couple of plants this year and these would make nice replacements. They could probably even be planted outside my netted area because the birds don't seem to bother the berries until they are ripe same with my Sweet Cherries - as soon as they start to turn the cardinals gobble them up.
