Making a Further Splash!

Fresh Blueberries at your fingertips...and straight from the garden?

More and more owners of home gardens, as well as balconies and terraces, are cultivating utility plants. Fruits from your own garden, cared for by your own hands, pampered with the sun, taste better and surely gives more satisfaction to the garden owners.

Vaccinium corymbosum Vacbril 1 ‘Cabernet Splash™’

The American blueberry, Vaccinium corymbosum Vacbril 1 ‘Cabernet Splash™’, introduced this year, fits in perfectly with this trend. Cabernet Splash not only bears tasty fruit (comes from the Toro variety) but also looks beautiful and reaches a small size.

Cabernet Splash leaves are just like wine in colour. Dark, brown-purple in spring, with a green hue in summer, dark brown in autumn. In spring, purple flower buds are an additional attraction that blooms into white flowers.

One-Year Shoots

Cabernet Splash bears fruit on one-year shoots, the first fruits ripen in mid-summer. Like all blueberries, it requires a sunny location, acidic soil, and regular irrigation and fertilization.

Cabernet Splash can easily find a place in every garden and terrace, as it grows up to about 1 m in height. We can plant it as a typical fruit plant, but with interesting color of leaves, or an element of a bed with heather plants.

Silver Medal in Novelty Category

"Vaccinium Cabernet Splash was awarded a Silver medal in the Novelty competition at the Green is Life 2021 exhibition.

It aroused great interest not only with the jury of the competition but also Polish nurserymen and private individuals who visited the exhibition. I predict that it will quickly gain popularity on the market." says Ronald Laman, Breederplants, who protects and introduces new plant varieties.
