Breeding of American blueberries

Breeding of American blueberries

Report 1980-1981, Division of Fruit Crop Breeding, Balsgard: 53-58

Seedling material of lowbush blueberries, mainly of Vaccinium angustifolium, which was obtained originally from New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Minnesota, has been in test at four localities in Sweden since 1978. The material has shown sufficient hardiness to be grown in more northerly growing zones than highbush (V. corymbosum) varieties.

On call. I've always enjoyed fruit with my breakfast cereal. Over the past year, my family seems to have shifted from bananas and strawberries to a steady diet of blueberries "because they'll keep you healthy". I love blueberries, but I do miss variety.
