Vaccinium x 'Pink Lemonade'

Pink Lemonade remains the first of the newest introductions of "not-blue" blueberries! This innovative variety's fruit turns a charming solid pink when fully ripe, sometimes with light yellow patching. which makes it a unique and interesting addition in the edible landscape. Bushes grow to 4-5' tall. Medium-sized berries are mild and sweet with a hint of lemon. when ripe midseason. The leaves turn a pretty yellow/orange in the fall. Spring blooms are white with a pink blush, and the winter twig color is red, giving you interesting color in all seasons.

This low-chill variety only needs 300 chill hours to bloom and ripen reliably. Highly acidic soils and regular moisture keep the plant happy and the berries plump and juicy.

USDA Zone: 6-8

Mature Height:  5' (Medium)

Sun: Full Sun

Ripening Time: Midseason/August

Ask a Question
  • Is this a highbush variety?

    Pink Lemonade is a hybrid of the Rabbiteye blueberry 'Delite' and an unnamed northern highbush cultivar, bred by the USDA over a period of 10 years.

  • Can I keep this variety in a pot? If so what size pot should I get?

    You can yes. 10-20 (dry) gallons at least.

  • How old are your pink lemonade blueberry plants. Is there a particular other variety that fits best with pink lemonade? I'm in zone 5b.

    Roughly 2 years old, and any other besides the Rabbiteye blueberries.

  • I just ordered this, not realizing its for zones 6-8. I live in Zone 4. Can I keep this plant in a pot and bring indoors in the winter?

    You can yes. It will eventually need a larger pot, but they transplant well. Be sure to water more frequently in a potted environment.

  • What is a good variety to plant with Pink Lemonade to increase pollination?

    Any other blueberry will provide cross pollination for this one.

  • What variety would be the best pollinator for this? I’m looking for something that has rabbiteye in it?

    No, you would need northern highbush or northern lowbush.

  • How long does it take the blueberries to produce fruit? Also what is the difference between the 2 liter vs 2-3 ft option?

    They are sold already flowering, so the same year or maybe the next if they aren't happy with the transplant. They are all roughly 2ft tall in a 1 gallon pot.

The Bush that arrived was in great shape. I have an older Pink Lemonade Bush and the berries are eagerly awated and quickly eaten.

So far, so good

The plant arrived as scheduled, I potted it up and put it in a part sun/part shade area awaiting fall planting. It’s perky and seems happy. It will grow in a “blue berry alley” that will be covered with bird/insect netting during harvesting season. Hopefully, that will allow us to enjoy more berries. We are pleased that everything we’ve ordered from you has grown.
Thank you - Linda in Va.

Pink lemonade

Pretty good shipping very minimal damage just a few leaves turned a bit brown and some fell off completely but most survived and the flowers came completely undamaged the blueberry was pretty tall about 2-3 ft in a gallon pot and a couple handful of flowers some already pollinated.the only negative thing I could say is that the entire plants stems were very thin but being in such a small pot I could see why.

Can wait for next years blueberry season

This was my first time ordering from Raintree. Communication was wonderful.. also the support I received was very welcoming.
My pink lemonade bush was packaged very well so I was excited when I returned home to see it on my front porch.
Although the bush is on the small size around a foot tall, give or take I wish I would have been able to have the option to purchase a two/two and a half ft bush to go with the three other blueberry bushes I purchased locally. Nevertheless, I am truly looking forward to next season berries.
