Blueberry (Vaccinium corymbosum L.) is a species from the Ericaceae family. It has strong shoots branching in the top parts and flowers gathered in clusters. It blossoms from April to May, it is pollinated by bumblebees and bees. Blueberry shrubs can grow up to 2.5 meters high, depending on the variety.
Blueberry fruits ripen from the first decade of July to September, or even to October in the case of late varieties. They are characterised by very good, sweet taste and have great nutritional values – they are rich in sugars, mineral acids, mineral salts, pectins and vitamins. They are suitable for direct consumption, as a dessert fruit, and for fruit preserves. Blueberry shrubs have a very well-developed, but shallow root system, which grows more in width than depth.
Blueberry seedlings have high soil requirements on plantations. They require acidic soil, preferably with the pH levels between 3.5 – 4.5 or max. up to 5.00. We recommend acidic peat soils, well-drained and with low salinity. Irrigation is necessary on light soils. Blueberry is a frost-resistant plant, some northern varieties withstand frosts down to -30°C.
