Izabel Blueberry

Description: Izabel is a very ornamental bilberry/blueberry type fruit, also a very ornamental plant with an "oriental" look. Very pretty and impressive, long, delicate, pink and white flowers. Fruits are oval and tangy. Naturally a small plant and good for patio growing, fresh eating and jams and jellies.

History: Developed in Azores, Portugal.

Blueberry Growing Tips: Happier planted in full sun or partial shade. Prefers moist, well-drained soil or ericaceous compost in a pot. Keep the plant well watered with rainwater, not tap water. Pruning is rarely needed in the first two years. After that you should prune in late February to early March. Remove a quarter of the branches every year to keep the plant productive. If you would like to eat the fruits yourself, don't forget to cover the plant to stop the birds getting them!
