Growing in Canada

As a High Chill region, Canada’s climate is ideal for producing summer fruit with mostly mid-summer ripening. Cultivated blueberry varieties grown in Canada are primarily the Northern Highbush-type that require distinct seasons and cold winters so that the blueberry plants go through a full winter dormancy.

Canada produces both fresh and processed blueberries, and growers primarily serve the markets of Canada, the US, and China. Well over 90% of Canada’s cultivated commercial blueberry crop is grown in British Columbia.  British Columbia’s water and soils are some of the best in the world for growing blueberries.

Fall Creek has proudly served growers of cultivated blueberries directly throughout Canada from our home offices in the US since the early 1980’s. Years ago we partnered with Sidhu Growers in order to better serve the British Columbia industry with a local presence.

Varieties For Canadian Growers

We conduct extensive trials and evaluations on the varieties offered in our portfolio. We do extensive research at our Oregon R&D facilities, which has similar growing conditions to British Columbia so Canadian growers receive great insights from our team of experts.

When we launch new varieties, our commitment is to openly and honestly share with growers what we know and what we don’t know. We also suggest growers trial the new varieties in their fields so you can make the best variety selection decisions.
