Product information "Firstberry® Blue Velvet"

The blue honeyberry firstberry® Blue Velvet grows slightly faster than the other varieties, but it retains the wide compact growth of other firstberries®. Precisely because of the slightly stronger growth, it is even more important for this variety that the shoots are tapered regularly so that bareness can be prevented. The fruit quality of Blue Velvet is excellent; there is a moment that is reminiscent of blueberries, but the full flavour development must be deferred with the harvest, until the colour of the flesh turns completely purple. And there is also another advantage of the firstberries compared to the better known cultivated blueberries: the anthocyanin content is higher - and therefore also the antioxidant potential - thanks to the fully coloured flesh of the firstberries.
 
Maturity: Blooms strongly at the beginning to middle of April, tends to be the earliest blooming firstberry variety; fully ripe in early June
Berries: Very large, medium blue berries, sweet and sour; ripe when the flesh is completely purple
Growth/health: Wide, compact, but higher than 'Blue Moon', 90 to 120 cm; delicate, green-grey foliage
Yield: 2 to 4 kg
Pollination: We recommend 'Blue Moon' as a pollinator; the flowering time is then overlapped the best. This variety can also be pollinated by Blue Moon, but the overlapping of the flowering time is then smaller.
 

Tips

Pruning honey berries/firstberries®: without pruning, firstberries go bare in the lower part of the shrub; they become woody and have hardly any leaves and flowers. To prevent this, cut out 1-2 of the oldest, most woody shoots every year.

Polinator for Firstberry® Blue Velvet (Kuba)

I was wonder whats the best pollinator for the Blue Velvet but I think you for a small mistake in the description (Blue Moon is mention as the best pollinator and as the second one too) "Pollination: We recommend 'Blue Moon' as a pollinator; the flowering time is then overlapped the best. This variety can also be pollinated by Blue Moon, but the overlapping of the flowering time is then smaller."

Polinator for Firstberry® Blue Velvet (Sonja Dreher)

Hello,
Mr Kobelt has tested those two varieties for pollination and the overlapping flowering time is sufficient for this purpose.

kind regards
your Lubera Team
