Blueberry Bushes–Fruit With Tough Skin

Anonymous added on September 15, 2013 | Answered

I live in western Washington and have 3 dwarf blueberry bushes. This is the first year they have been in the ground after several seasons in pots. Our summer weather included some severe 'hot spots. ' I'm wondering if this is the cause of the berries having tough skins or if there is something else I should be doing to produce berries with tender skins.

Hot, dry, windy weather makes for tough-skinned blueberries. As your plant gets more established in the ground, the skin might get less thick and tough. To aid this, give ample water and possibly add a wind break.
