Blueberries from seed
« on: July 09, 2022, 03:40:07 PM »
Hey!

I have some blueberry seedlings, vaccinium corymbosum, and wonder how they will become compared to the fruit they came from.Anyone has experience growing out blueberries from seed? Will they vary a lot in taste and size from seed,
and how many years does it take?

Thanks!

Hi are you going to store in the fridge for cold stratification ?

I'd store for 3 months dry (I am pretty sure the are not needing moist soil to be stored or recalcitrant seed)
I am pretty sure they are orthodox seed (or stored dry)

Yes I have done that, they are about one year old seedlings now and I have about 50 of them that reach about 5 inch each, will they vary when they mature or will the fruit become somewhat the same? They come from 5 different fruits from the same bush, as I remember.
