Culture and breeding of highbush blueberries in Finland


, : Culture and breeding of highbush blueberries in Finland. Acta Horticulturae 61: 101-110

In a trial of 20 varieties of Vaccinium corymbosum planted before 1960, Rancocas, June and Pemberton gave the highest yield in 1964-75. Bluecrop, Scammel and Berkeley had the heaviest berries in 1967 and 1971-75. In 1967-74, Atlantic was the tallest and Rancocas the most resistant to Fusicoccum putrefaciens (Godronia cassandrae); June, Rancocas and Atlantic were the most winter hardy. June and Earliblue were very early, and Atlantic and Rancocas were early.
