When I think of subtropical fruit, the blueberry is not the first thing that comes to mind. Pineapples, mangoes and bananas yes, blueberries no.
Obviously, I am quite wrong.
This fabulous little Sharpeblue blueberry has been in the ground for less than one year, and already has produced not one, not two, but three ripe berries. There are 26 more yet to ripen, and, wait for it, 5 new blossoms. The berries are sweet and juicy, and perhaps even more importantly, nothing is trying to eat it apart from myself. Next visit to the nursery and I am buying up a veritable field of them.
And what is even more fabulously marvelous, Sharpeblue is the kind of blueberry that you are allowed to let fruit in its first year. Other kinds you pull off the blossoms as the form.
I so don't know how I'm going to cope when it comes to leaving the asparagus alone.
