Blueberries turned to raisins on the bush

Asked August 5, 2020, 10:56 PM EDT

My blueberries went straight from the green stage to dried raisins on the bush without ever stopping in the plump delicious stage. Is this due to under watering? I know I have a acidification issue that I’m working through as well. Could it be related to that? Now a number of the leaves are turning brown and appeared burned. Any suggestions?Thank you!
