Answer 10
This is a very common question for those interested in fruit trees. People that want to take the time to plant and care for the trees want to know how soon they can be rewarded by the fruit that the trees will bear. The answers to these questions will depend on the variety that you are trying to grow.

Generally speaking, a fruit tree is able to bear fruit when it can blossom on its own. It takes several years for this to happen. The environment can effect the amount of time that it takes to bear fruit. Factors such as age, growing conditions, and cold or chill hours all will determine the time frame for fruit production. Also, dwarf trees will often produce fruit 1 to 3 years sooner then the full size version of the tree.
Answer 11
Pruning is necessary to maintain the health of your blueberry bushes. However, you must be careful as pruning can directly effect the fruit production of your plant. Pruning is best done when the bush is dormant, either in the late fall or the early spring. Spring is often the preferred time because you will be able to see which (if any) branches were damaged through the winter and need to be trimmed.
Answer 12
