Description

The Andean Blueberry is found naturally across Peru, Colombia, Venezuela and into the Caribbean. The plant grows in thickets and woodland margins on mountain sides and the fruit (which are related to the cultivated blueberry) are often eaten locally as a jelly or used in pies and tarts.

Sowing Advice

These seeds have already been thoroughly cleaned and cold-stored for several months. They should be sown into well-drained, sandy compost at any time of the year, and covered to their own depth with sand or grit. No artificial heat is needed; the seed tray is best left in a cool spot outside and kept moist. Seeds germinate very slowly indeed in the spring after a chilling in the cold compost, regardless of when they are sown. Some seeds may take more than a year to germinate.
