Chandler Highbush Organic Blueberry Plant
Chandler is a 1994 release by the USDA Blueberry Breeding Program. I have been growing Chandler for over 20 years now and I’ve been impressed with berry size and flavor. Chandler’s particular traits are a light blue berry that is consistently very large with fine, sweet flavor. Production is a bit lower than other late season cultivars (averaging 7# on mature bushes), but the berries are so much bigger than others at this time of year, I find it rewarding to grow. Chandler reaches 5-6’ in height, and ripens late July to mid August, right before Arlen (some overlap). Chandler is another cultivar that I have found to be more productive and vigorous when planted with the soil-less method described in our Planting Guide.
USDA hardiness zones 5-8
