Keeping this in view, are blueberries native to Oregon?
Big, fat, store-bought, domesticated blueberries are as close as most Oregonians come to eating Oregon's native huckleberries. The most commonly cultivated blueberry species in North America is Vaccinium corymbosum, the northern high bush blueberry and its cultivars.
Furthermore, what type of blueberry plant do I have? There are four types of blueberries: highbush, lowbush, hybrid half-high and rabbiteye. The most commonly planted blueberry is the highbush. Most blueberry breeding has focused on this species, so there are many varieties that range widely in cold hardiness and fruit season, size, and flavor.
Hereof, what kind of berries grow in Oregon?
Berries: Many berry crops thrive in Central Oregon, especially raspberries, strawberries, gooseberries, currants and serviceberries. You also might try cold-hardy, early-season varieties of table grapes, blueberries and blackberries.
How do I encourage my blueberries to grow?
Apply one-half cup per bush of an acidic 10-10-10 granular fertilizer in a 2-foot diameter around the blueberry bush; azalea fertilizers work well for blueberries. Alternatively, use blood meal, fish meal or cottonseed meal for organic production.
