A fruit with growing appeal
Blueberries are hot! A healthy lifestyle is more and more important. Thanks to the focus on healthy foods, vitamins and antioxidants, sales of blueberries are rising. Blueberries are perennial flowering plants that belong to the Ericaceae family. Like the rest of the family, they prefer very acidic soils.
Challenges to successful production
Highbush blueberry shrubs – one of the most common commercial varieties – usually need as much as six to eight years to reach full production. Blueberry growers can face other problems like pests, poorly developed root systems, unfavourable weather, and high labor costs.

The Jiffy portfolio also includes a high-quality substrate specially designed for the propagation of young plants.
