Unlike the dwarf blueberry, which grows in clusters, the corymb blueberry is bushy, which makes it perfect for row cropping, and its berries are 3-5 times larger. Initiated in Quebec during the 1960s, production has developed rather rapidly over the past ten years. Hybrids were developed by the USDA during the first half of the 20th Century, through selective reproduction of the native dwarf blueberry. This is a magnificent shrub that yields superb large berries, but its hardiness must be considered before purchasing. Best performance requires three cultivars.
This variety prodives growers with fresh berries until late September. Very abundant and fertile, long storage capacity. Late in ripening (September) : recommended choice for capitalizing on best market price, but late berries may be loste to early frost. Should only be set out the best growing areas (hillside). Must be cut back to reduce quantity of berries.
