Click here for a featured recipe by allrecipes.comBlueberries are easy to grow and do well in New England. They prefer a well drained acidic soil and full sun, but will tolerate partial shade. Plant two different cultivars for best pollination. White flowers, attractive fruit and brilliant fall color make blueberries an excellent landscape plant throughout the growing season. One of the best native plants available for the landscape. Blueberries are an excellent substitute for Dwarf Burning Bush.

Blueberries are naturally high in anti-oxidants! Blueberries are extremely nutritious and have a high vitamin content. They're excellent in pies and make delicious jams and preserves. Best of all, bake your own Blueberry Muffins!

Wild Lowbush Blueberry
Wild Lowbush Blueberries are a native fruit crop to Atlantic Canada, Quebec and the state of Maine. They are short in stature and unlike their Highbush cousins, may spread with underground stems. A mature planting can form a dense ground cover. Profuse white blooms yield small sized light blue fruit with the distinctive "wild" blueberry flavor. Annual pruning is not necessary but they respond well if two-thirds of the growth is sheared back every second or third year in late winter. Great candidates for landscape borders, these plants will attract wildlife, and your friends and family alike.

Northern Highbush are high chill varieties and the most widely planted blueberries, popular with home gardeners throughout the Northern U.S. and Southern Canada.

The berries range in size from ¼" to over 1" in diameter, and in color from almost black to light powder blue. Northern Highbush require a minimum of 800 chilling hours for proper fruit set.
