Species: Vaccinium corymbosum

History: Chandler higbush blueberry was introduced in 1995. It originated in Corvallis, Oregon where it was developed by the United States Department of Agriculture's Agricultural Research Service agency's (USDA-ARS) Blueberry Breeding Program.

Why We Grow It: Chandler produces the largest blueberries in the commercial industry, and plenty of them! They are sweet and juicy despite their size and can be harvested over a long period of time.

Canadian Hardiness Zone: 5

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: Shrub grows 1.5-2m tall, vigorous with an upright growth habit, produces good crops

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

Pollination: Self-pollinating, this variety will produce fruit without a different highbush blueberry variety but will produce more and better fruit if one is present    

Ripens: Mid July

Storage: Keeps less than two weeks when stored in the fridge

Recommended Use: Fresh eating, baking, preserving, wine

Height Above Soil Line: 30cm+
