The delectable Summer Sunset Blueberry

 

This Summer Sunset Blueberry is a complex hybrid edible ornamental. Planted in my garden 3 years ago it has teased us with a scant handful of fruit.

The name is derived from the color of the fruit as it moves through the stages of setting, growing and ripening. The changing fruit reflects the colors in a summer sunset. When ripe it has a deep, dark shiny night blue color with no frost.

The berries are little flavor powerhouses, they taste like Blueberry Lemonade!
