I live in milton de and want to grow blueberies. I want to find out how many chilling days we have each year so I can pick the best variety of blueberries.

Sussex County Delaware

Expert Response

Southern Delaware receives enough chilling hours to successfully grow Northern Highbush Blueberry varieties (>800) and this is the type that has historically been grown in the area. Certain Southern Highbush varieties are adapted, but they tend to flower early and can be susceptible to late freezes.
