In 2017, Fairplant from Emmeloord – The Netherlands started producing blueberry plants in-house. Fairplant has recently been able to add three license varieties to the range, namely Draper, Liberty and Aurora.
Michigan State University (MSU) has granted Fairplant the licenses. Sales manager Rik Klein explains: "At the time, we have chosen to grow blueberries in-house to better meet the demand. We are happy that we can now also line-up these three popular license varieties in Europe and the UK. Professor emeritus James Hancock of the MSU started breeding these varieties in the nineties. They came on the market in 2004 and they are still among the best varieties in the industry.
"In the near future we are also going to deliver our variety package of blueberries as organic (or so-called ‘BIO’) plants. The expo-SE fair in Karlsruhe - Germany on 20 and 21 November is the first opportunity for interested parties to ask us everything about the blueberries. "
In addition to blueberry plants, Fairplant produces and markets fruit tree rootstocks, fruit trees, various small fruit plants, machines and products for tree nurseries. The company is based in Noordoostpolder (Flevoland - the Netherlands). On the rich polder soil, the rootstocks and plants get a strong, fertile base. In 2020, Fairplant will open a demo field with all the common and organic blueberries it delivers, so that buyers can see how the varieties grow and develop.
