Highbush blueberries / Vaccinium corymbosum / Bleuet en corymbe

Compared with the dwarf blueberry that develops shoots, the highbush blueberry is bushy, wich facilitates growing in rows, and the berries are 3 to 5 times larger. Introduced to Quebec in the 1960s, production has expanded rapidly in the past 10 years or so. The USDA developed the hybrids in the first half of the 20th century, through selective breeding of the native dwarf blueberry. It is a spectacular shrub that produces beautiful, large berries, but its hardiness needs to be taken into consideration when ordering.

Common Name: Highbush Blueberries
Latin name: Vaccinium corymbosum L.
Family : Ericaceae
Category : Fruit shrub

When planting Highbush Blueberry bushes, allow 3 to 5 feet between plants, depending on the variety and 8 to 12 feet between rows, depending on the maintenance and harvesting equipment used.
