 Chapter 7: Small Fruits and Brambles
The blueberry industry in the United States is concerned primarily with three distinct types of blueberries: highbush, lowbush, and rabbiteye.
Later, Coville (1921) observed that when blueberry flowers were pollinated with their own pollen, and fruit was obtained, the berries were smaller and later in maturing than when pollen came from another plant, and some plants were almost completely sterile to their own pollen.
The greatest benefit in blueberry pollination seems to be derived when there are aufficient pollinators to distribute the pollen freely, not only from anthers to stigma of self-fertile flowers, or between plants of a cultivar some of which may be self-sterile, but also between self- sterile cultivars (Hall and Aalders 1961).

 Blueberry review - movie review of the Jan Kounen film starring Vincent Cassel
Blueberry is the adaptation of a French Western comic by Charlier and Giraud—a.k.a.
As the film opens with some impressive aerial and wide angle shots, it is obvious that director Jan Kounen, the author of the controversial and misunderstood Doberman—another target of the lynch mob mentality of the French press— knew his handicap as a Frenchman taking the reins of a western.
It's like Kounen tries to prove to us that Blueberry is a real and authentic western; the film features all the ingredients of the genre, including the typical one-street town with its saloon and brothel, a couple of gunfights and a chase between cowboys and Indians.
