Beaked Hazelnut vs Blueberry

Corylus cornuta

Vaccinium myrtilloides

Beaked Hazelnut
Blueberry

Beaked Hazelnut is a multi-stemmed, deciduous shrub native to North America.

It features smooth, grey bark and edible nuts. Beaked Hazelnut prefers a rich sandy-clay loam but will grow on poorer sites, and can be used as an understory shrub.

Common Wild Blueberry is a must-have for anyone who appreciates the tasty little berries as much as we do.

These blueberries are grown from locally collected seed and produce small, sweet berries in August. The fruit is terrific for fresh eating and cooking.

Note: We are selling wild blueberries native to the prairies, not their bigger cousins that grow as a bush in B.C.
