Strange branch.

I have a quick question. This is my blueberry bush. I found this branch yesterday. Should I cut it off?

Are you talking about the larger branch at the top of the picture? It's you call depending on your pruning strategy. Personally I'd leave it. I like to let mine grow.

This looks like normal dieback due to leaving a stub when cutting back a stem. The cut should be made within about one quarter of an inch above a leaf or node to cause a neat sealing of the cut. Al

It has now turned brown. Should I cut it off?

Cut it back to "within one quarter of an inch above a leaf or node."
