Crop profile for lowbush blueberry in Canada, 2017 / prepared by: Pest Management Program, Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada.: A118-10/31-2017E-PDF
"The lowbush blueberry is a perennial, native fruit that grows in treeless barrens, fields and burned-over areas of north-eastern North America. It is a member of the Ericaceae or Heath family. The crop is unique in that it is not planted, but is harvested from managed, wild stands, unlike the highbush blueberry that is planted and maintained in an orchard. Harvested lowbush blueberry species include Vaccinium angustifolium, which comprises most of the harvested lowbush blueberry in Canada, and the velvet leaf blueberry, V. myrtilloides. There are no different cultivars within these two species"--Page .
