organogenesis has only been established in a limited number of cultivars. Increasing evidence shows that protocols developed for regenerating blueberries are cultivar specific ( Debnath, 2005 , 2009 ; Liu et al., 2010 ; Meiners et al., 2007 ), implying that

, Europe, Asia, and Africa ( Ratnaparkhe, 2007 ). The three major commercially grown blueberry types are highbush ( Vaccinium corymbosum ), lowbush ( Vaccinium angustifolium ), and rabbiteye ( Vaccinium virgatum ) ( Ratnaparkhe, 2007 ). Highbush cultivars

recently, Brazelton (2013) reported an increased interest in using machine harvest among SHB cultivars, particularly for use in machine harvest for fresh fruit (MFF) marketing. An ideal highbush blueberry plant for machine harvest was first described by

cross-pollination between cultivars is widely acknowledged by commercial growers, there is little information available on cultivar compatibility for home gardeners. Thus, when a new blueberry cultivar becomes available to the retail sector, one of the

The blueberry cultivar situation in North America is undergoing rapid change. Attempts to grow blueberries in non-traditional areas, and increased biotic and abiotic challenges in traditional production areas, are fueling the search for superior, adapted cultivars. This survey of all blueberry-producing states/provinces in the United States and Canada provides the current status and projected trends in blueberry cultivar use in North America. Most (86%) of current hectarage is comprised of 25 northern highbush, 10 rabbiteye, and two southern highbush cultivars. `Bluecrop' is the dominant northern highbush cultivar, with 35% of the highbush area, while `Tifblue' occupies 40% of the rabbiteye area. Some historically important cultivars, such as `Jersey', `Weymouth', and `Woodard' are in decline. New cultivars of all blueberry types are beginning to have a positive impact on the blueberry industry.
