AbstractF1 hybrids of Vaccinium darrowi and Vaccinium arboreum showed high vigor but low fertility. Open pollination of F1s with progeny of open pollinated V. darrowi and V. arboreum plants produced highly variable fertility in the resulting seedlings. Chromosome counts were performed on F1 hybrids and open pollinated V. darrowi and V. arboreum progeny.
