Blueberries are one of the best BC berry crops.
Blueberries are a great long term investment as blueberry bushes can bear fruit for up to 50 year. The berries of popular varities are large, sweet, and are filled with powerful antioxidants. Some of my favorite varieties of blueberries are Duke, Spartan, Bluecrop, and Elliot.
Blueberries require a rich acidic soil with high organic matter. They require proper soil preparation when planting and benefit from a good wood chip mulch because of their shallow roots. Blueberries are great eaten fresh off the bush, used in smoothies, pies and deserts, frozen and eaten all year. Blueberries are great paired with Blackberries, Fall Raspberries, Rhubarb, Figs.
