Small Fruits

Wild Lowbush blueberries are a native fruit crop to Atlantic Canada, Quebec and the state of Maine. They are short in stature and unlike their Highbush cousins, may spread with underground stems. A mature planting can form a dense ground cover. Profuse white blooms yield small sized light blue fruit with the distinctive “wild” blueberry flavor. Annual pruning is not necessary but they respond well if two-thirds of the growth is sheared back every second or third year in late winter.
