Raspberry ‘Strawberry Shortcake’

This initial variety in the Brazelberry collection is a thornless dwarf raspberry. It has a compact, mounding habit reaching 24-36 inches in height. It’s ideally suited for large patio containers. It requires no staking, no pollination and has sturdy upright canes – without a single thorn. It also rewards gardeners and homeowners with super sweet raspberries with a slight vanilla essence in mid-summer. Fruits mid-season. Fruit appear on canes that have gone through winter dormancy. Once fruiting is finished, prune away those canes. Leave new canes to fruit next season. Best grown in full sun in neutral to slightly acidic moist, but well drained soils. Fertilize in early spring.Hardy in zones 5-7.

Blueberry ‘Peach Sorbet’

‘Peach Sorbet’ is a real peach of a blueberry. It offers four seasons of interest. It’s a compact blueberry with vibrant new spring growth ranging from peach to pink to orange to emerald. Spring’s white bell shaped flowers will give way to an abundant summer crop of healthy, peach-sweet, almost tropical tasting blueberries. In most climates, ‘Peach Sorbet’ keeps its leaves year round. If they do remain in your area, foliage colour can dramatically shift to rich eggplant purple. This blueberry is ideal as a landscape plant or even in a decorative container on your patio. Fruits mid-season. Best in full sun and acidic, moist, but well drained soils. Grows 1-2ft in height and spread. Prune away canes that have fruited. Leave new canes to fruit the following year. Hardy in zones 5-10.

Blueberry ‘Jellybean’

‘Jelly Bean’ is a super dwarf hardy blueberry that is prolific – producing a huge crop of large flavourful berries in mid-summer. Fruit has a super-sweet flavor almost like homemade blueberry jelly. New foliage emerges brilliant green in spring, giving way to darker greens and reds throughout the summer and fall. In cooler climates, summer brings radiant red leaf edges and tips on the uniquely elongated leaves. Best grown in full sun in moist, but well drained acidic soils. Fertilize in early spring. Grows 1-2ft in height and spread. Once fruiting is complete, prune away canes that have fruited. Leave new canes to produce fruit next year.Hardy in zones 4-7.
