Pink Popcorn® Blueberry
Pink Popcorn® (aka MNPink1 cultivar) is the first pink blueberry introduced by the University. Research conducted at the Agricultural Experiment Station’s northernmost research center in North America near Grand Rapids, Minnesota, has yielded this truly hardy plant, the only pink blueberry on the market tolerant in Zone 4 temperatures.
The vase-shaped bushes with beautiful white flowers and medium green foliage that turns bright red in the fall make Pink Popcorn a winner in the home landscape. Creamy white and pink berries ripen early to mid-season. They are self-fruitful, but will produce a heavier crop if planted with another early-season variety.
The glowing blush-colored berries have the taste and aroma of the best blueberries, and could offer gourmands a decorative and exotic surprise. The crisp texture promises a “snap” of flavor, hence the whimsical “Popcorn” name.
