Highbush blueberries are an important native fruit crop in New Hampshire. In their natural habitat, highbush blueberries are usually found growing along wetland margins. In home yards and garden blueberries grow best in well-drained soils that are high in organic matter. Sites that receive full-sun all day long promote maximum fruit production. Most importantly, blueberries need an acidic soil with a pH between 4.5 and 5.0 in order to grow well. If the soil pH is too high the leaves may yellow and the plants will likely fail to grow.
