Meredith79 On May 21, 2015 Miscellaneous Event
Chandler holds the distinction of being the world’s largest blueberry. The long ripening season will provide gardeners with a bounty of flavorful, fresh picked fruit for up to six weeks. Eaten by the handful or presented with a specialty dessert, Chandler will be a favorite.
