I live in Zone 7 and have 11 blueberry bushes, North Sky,Top Hat, Patriot, Blue Crop, Sunshine and one or two other varities. The berries will appear to be ripe but they don’t have the blueberry flavor. They produce well but not a blueberry flavor.
Do they need more fertilizer? I use Jobes Organics berry fertilizer and Blueberry Success soil from Gurneys Nurseries.
