If you want to add a little razzle-dazzle to your blueberry patch, Pink Popcorn may be a good choice. The berries are actually pink when they’re ripe—but they still have that characteristic blueberry flavor. This is a northern highbush variety. It likes peaty, acidic soil and consistent moisture. With a 4- to 5-foot height and spread, Pink Popcorn is a prolific producer.
