NORHTERN HIGH BUSH VARIETIES are types of bushes that need a high amount of "chill hours" to get their fruit set. If these Northern Highbush varieties do not get the required number of chill hours they may and often will grow great but will not produce any fruit. These bushes are rated zone 4 through zone 7 which includes most of the Central, Western, mid-West, and Eastern United States as well as some parts of Canada. If you are unsure if they will do well in your area please ask, we will be happy to check our charts and let you know. Chill hours are an accumulation of hours where temperature's reach between 30 degrees F to 45 degrees F (0 degree C to 70 degree C).
SOUTHERN HIGHBUSH VARIETIES are types of bushes rated zone 6 through zone 10 and require much less "chill hours" the varieties we grow need only 150 chill hours to get their fruit set, which means you can even grow them and have fruit in Florida, Texas & California. The Southern Highbush varieties will do well for much of the Southern and Westcoast states as well as some of the South Central states. If you are unsure if they will do well in your area please ask, we will be happy to check our charts and let you know. Chill hours are an accumulation of hours where temperature's reach between 30 degrees F to 45 degrees F (0 degree C to 70 degree C).
