Hi all,

Does anyone have experience growing Japanese Blueberry Tree?

I found this http://www.worldofblueberry.com/japanese-blueberry-tree-all-you-need-to-know/, and it made me very curious..


Thanks in advance

Wow, "These trees mature to a height ranging anywhere between 30 to 50 feet and spread equally to the height, as wide as forty to fifty feet."
Looks interesting Bispo.
I probably couldn't get them to live up here in the high country, wrong zone.

If you notice, the article doesn't talk about its edibility and they show a photo of a blueberry plant, rather than this tree. This tree is for ornament not for some blueberry edible use. If you want blueberry tree 30' or so, grow one of the tree species of juneberries that are out there, they could be more realistically called a blueberry tree than this thing.

OSU is trying the grafting of blueberries onto sparkleberries, the latter of which isn't edible but in the same family (?):
