This selection includes the varieties that we recommend best from within the three main groups:

Northern Highbush

This is our oldest range, essentially composed of Vaccinium corymbosum. Today, it also includes a number of hybrids. This is the case for most of the newer varieties that offer a better Brix or firmness of fruit.

The varieties in this range are suited to oceanic and continental climates. They require over 800 hours of chilling per year.

Southern Highbush

This is a newer range produced from inter-specific hybrids, in most cases Vaccinium corymbosum hybrids. Chilling needs for these varieties range from zero to very little. Their foliage is semi-persistent. Range recommended for Mediterranean climates with mild winters.

Rabbiteye

This is a cousin species (Vaccinium virgatum) that has relatively low chilling needs. Rabbit-eye varieties are late fruiting. The earliest fruiting ones ripen just before the latest fruiting Vaccinium corymbosum. These varieties have the economic benefit of producing for the off-season (September/October) in regions where fruit can ripen sufficiently late without being exposed to too harsh winter frosts.
