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 since the early 1980’s. Years ago we partnered with Sidhu Growers. Today, we serve Canada in an updated way. If you are interested in standard varieties such as Duke, Blue Ribbon, Draper, and Calypso, Harry Sidhu will be happy to assist you. For customers interested in the new varieties offered in the Fall Creek® Collection such as ArabellaBlue® 'FC14-062,' LoretoBlue™ 'FC11-118,' and LunaBlue® 'FC12-205,' Ranjeet Randhawa, Fall Creek's Grower Support Representative for British Columbia is available for inquiries and on-going support.
