History: BB4 lowbush blueberry was discovered growing wild in a bush near a tissue culture lab near the small municipality of L'Ascension-de-Notre-Seigneur in the Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean region of Quebec. Impressed with the quality and flavour, the lab decided to propagate these wild blueberries.

Why We Grow It: BB4 produces medium to large powder-blue berries, with a tasty, sweet flavour. The berries grow in nice clusters, making picking easy.

Canadian Hardiness Zone: 4

Soil Preference: Prefers sandy, well-drained, acidic soil. We plant ours in a mix of one part peat moss and 1 part wood chips (we prefer pine). Consider checking your soil type and pH before planting and adding peat moss or other acidifiers if needed. 

Growth Habits: Forms a low shrub ~30cm tall 

Sun/Shade: Full sun (approx. 8-10 hours of sun daily) preferred but will tolerate partial shade

Pollination: Requires another lowbush blueberry of a different cultivar to produce fruit, the more cultivars present the better the pollination
