As a budding rock star in my youth, I was introduced to Frank Forster\’s blueberrie test garden.
Between mopping up the stepped floors of the Palace Theater in Silverton, and trying to make food money (we got free beer for our performances in the local taverns with our band Justus, senior), I was AMAZED at the variety of blueberrie varieties at Frank Forster\’s university test farm!
I had NO idea, that blueberries had so many varieties (and a good many of them tasted a WHOLE lot better than the commercially available varieties!
Recently talking with Frank\’s heir apparent (Susan Maginnis), I want to transplant bearing fruit trees into my garden this year.
Still working on that, she will sell me 3 year old\’s for 7 bucks, but I want bearing plant (over 5 years old), though she tells me I would need to transport a 4 food diameter root ball!
VERY knowlegeable and dedicated, if you want to know about Blueberries, talk to Susan (she remembered my picking season from 25 years ago!).

If you want to know blueberries, talk with Susan Maginnis of Forster’s Blueberrie Hill!
I have known them for well over two decades, and they likely have the largest selection of heirloom blueberrie varieties on the planet (as part of a university study, MANY years ago).
Three thumbs up!
