Through careful breeding of Vaccinum corymbosum, David Brazelton and Adam Wagner of Fall Creek Farm & Nursery, Inc. have created another excellent blueberry variety, Pink Icing. To achieve the final product, Brazelton and Wagner cross-bred three of their earlier blueberry variants: ‘Ivanhoe,’ ‘Toro,’ and ‘Earliblue.’ In 2013, Brazelton and Wagner patented what was then known as ‘ZF06-079’ to the more easy-to-remember name of Pink Icing.
Sweet and savory, Pink Icing will steal the attention in your landscape. You'll notice first the various shades of pink, blue, and deep green foliage that keep up with its coloring all year! In fall, the leaves will change color to a nice turquois-purple that will remain throughout the winter. With berries ripe in July, you will have all the fresh fruit you need for your next BBQ! Each berry is sweet and flavorful, perfect for all to enjoy! Each plant can produce up to 4 lbs of berries a year, with crops becoming heavier and heavier as the years go by.

How to Grow
Acid soil is key to growing Blueberries successfully. These peat-loving Accents require very low–pH conditions to thrive. If your soil isn’t naturally acidic, you may want to grow Pink Icing Blueberry in a large container or raised bed. Give it all-day sun if possible and use lots of organic matter—both as a soil amendment and mulch. Water weekly if no rainfalls. Even though Pink Icing is self-pollinating, you may want to plant other blueberry varieties to increase your yearly berry yield.
