Blue Berry Fruit Production

The blue berry fruit is produced on bushes which can grow upto 2m in height. If maintained properly the bushes can produce fruit upto 15-20 years. The blue berry bushes bear fruit on one-year-old branches. Therefore, it is necessary to prune the old wood, diseased and damaged branches for good fruit quality. The bushes are mostly pruned during early spring.
