Wild Blueberries from Seed
Maine’s lowbush, or wild, blueberry (Vaccinium angustifolium Ait.) is native to northern New England and Atlantic Canada.
This species of blueberry grows as a field crop in acidic, well-draining soils. Adapted to these soils and Maine’s coastal environment and challenging winters, wild blueberries are a low input crop.
To create a new field, a section of forest is cut down and the land is managed to maintain an early successional habitat where wild blueberry thrives
