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.
Early variety. Half-high hybrid, upwards of 40-50 cm (3 to 4 feet). Sweet tasting berries that average 0.8 g. Its abundance and wild blueberry flavour make it an ideal choice for commercial growing.
