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.
