Highbush vs. Lowbush

Blueberries come in two varieties: highbush and lowbush. Highbush blueberries are cultivated from late June to the end of July and lowbush are harvested during a two week period in August. Highbrush blueberries are more plentiful and larger than lowbrush, but are less intense in color and flavor. Lowbush blueberries have been tested to show higher levels of anthocyanins than highbush.
