Northern Highbush

Zones: 4-7

Chill Hours: 1000+

Harvest: Mid to late season.

Bush Habit: Slightly spreading bush reaching 5'-7' tall with burgundy and orange foliage in fall.

Fruit: Giant, full and robust flavored berries.

Facts of note: Chandler holds the distinction of being the world's largest blueberry with fruit the size of cherries. The long ripening season will provide gardeners with a bounty of flavorful, fresh picked fruit for up to six weeks. Eaten by the handful or presented as part of a specialty dessert, Chandler will be a favorite.

Delicious, exceptionally nutritious, high in bioflavanoids. Gardeners in warmer climates can enjoy growing blueberries by choosing one of the Southern Highbush varieties. These require fewer chill hours than the Northern Highbush which require over 1000 hours. Consider climate suitability, ripening season and fruit size when selecting varieties and include at least two different varieties for cross–pollination and fruiting (any two varieties will do, regardless of ripening time). Grow in acidic, well–drained soil. Cottonseed meal is an excellent fertilizer for blueberries along with good quality compost and peat moss.

These blueberries are 2 year plants.
