  • History & Lore

    Blueberries love the acid soils typical of all members of the Ericadeae which share the small bell-shaped flowers. The genus includes about 150 species of shrubs found in the Noarth America and eastern Asia. This is a hybrid between the swamp blueberry, V. corymbosum and V. angustifolium. It is a hybrid introduced by the University of Minnesota in 1983.
