Description

  • Latin Name: Vaccinium corymbosum sp.
  • Variety: Northern Highbush
  • Plant Age: 1 Year
  • Zones: 4-7
  • Chill Hours: 1000+
  • Harvest: Mid to late season.
  • Bush Habit: Slightly spreading bush reaching 5-6' 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. 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.
