Why the Chandler Highbush Blueberry?
Big dollops of juicy, sweet goodness! Chandler Highbush Blueberry boasts the largest blueberries of any selection you can grow. These plump, luscious berries cannot be picked by machine, and they ripen over an extended period. As a result, commercial growers don’t want to mess with them, and you generally can’t buy them in stores. But what makes Chandler impractical for big growers makes it wonderful for home gardeners. You get a long season of harvest and fruit that puts supermarket produce to shame! Plant Chandler near your door for easy, fresh summertime snacking.
So many of the plants we grow for food come from distant places. The Highbush Blueberry is a homegrown American native. It grows in the wild from Maine all the way to Florida, ranging westward to Minnesota and Louisiana. Over the years, plant breeders have worked to improve the size, flavor, and quantity of its berries. The USDA has been instrumental in developing this beloved native fruit. Chandler was the result of efforts by USDA horticulturists working across the country. The Blueberry with the supersized fruits was discovered in Maryland, refined in New Jersey, and introduced in Oregon.
How to use in the landscape?
Take the time to appreciate Chandler Highbush Blueberry’s exquisite flowers in the spring. The dainty white blossoms, shaped like tiny, upside-down urns, make a pleasing show. You’ll also enjoy the flaming orange-red color that Chandler’s foliage takes on in the fall. A delightful Accent with or without fruit!

How To Plant
Acid soil is key to growing Blueberries successfully. These peat-loving Accents require very low–pH conditions in order to thrive. If your soil isn’t naturally acidic, you may want to grow Chandler Blueberry in a large container or raised bed. Give it all-day sun if possible and use lots of organic matter—both as a soil amendment and as mulch. Water weekly if no rain falls. Chandler Blueberry is self-pollinating, but you’ll get bigger fruits and more of them if you plant another variety of Highbush Blueberry nearby so they can pollinate each other.
How To Fertilize
Incorporate Elements Starter Plant food granular form into the soil when planting. If planting in spring or summer, start fertilizing late fall using Elements Starter Plant food granular form on an annual basis each late fall. Continue this for the first three years to get your plant well established.
