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. Not a reliable pollinizer for most blueberries with Northern Highbush parentage. Highly acidic soils and regular moisture keep the plant happy and the berries plump and juicy.

Cold Hardy to USDA Zone: 6

Mature Height:  5' (Medium)

Sun: Full Sun

Ripening Time: Midseason/August

Pollination: Partially Self Fertile

Ask a Question
  • Is this plant self fertile?

    Partially. It will crop heavier and more reliably when planted with other Northern Highbush blueberry varieties.

  • 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.

Pink Lemonade

My plant has taken off nicely. She is full of new leaves and growing branches.

Cant wait to taste the pink berries everyone has been talking about.

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.
