Variety EB 8-30

Plants cannot be ordered online or delivered to Western Australia or Tasmania due to interstate quarantine restrictions.

This Australian bred naturally dwarf Blueberry variety has been selected by PlantNet® specifically for the home gardener. This variety is unique for its extremely large fruit size, high yielding, and early season flowering and early season harvest.

If all our recommendations on the blueberry plant care page are followed carefully, you can produce fruit up to three times larger than current blueberry varieties available to the home gardener.

The extra-large fruit size is a result of traditional plant breeding methods, which have taken the plant breeder many years to perfect. This is an evergreen, naturally dwarfing variety. It has been trialled with great success in both warmer and cooler climates across Australia.

Grow as a pigeon pair for a longer harvest season

Harvest occurs over three to four months resulting in a constant supply of delicious, healthy fruit, filled with antioxidants. Blueberries have actually been nick named brain berries and youth berries because of their high antioxidant levels.

When grown with the second PlantNet® blueberry variety, Blueberry Kisses®, you can extend the harvest season by a further three to four months giving you up to six to eight months of delicious fresh blueberries from your backyard! Click here to purchase a Pigeon Pair.

Beginning and length of harvest will vary depending on region, climate and how the plants are grown.

    Blueberry Burst is grown widely in Australia across many climates including colder growing regions with the majority of home gardeners having success. One home gardener in Victoria who contacts us regularly is getting 4kg of fruit per bush every year The most common issue that we see with evergreen varieties like Blueberry Burst and Blueberry Kisses is home gardeners not applying enough nutrients through summer and autumn. Try building up your nutrients by using products high in nitrogen, potassium and phosphorous.
