Seasonal variation in photosynthetic rates of lingonberry (Vaccinium vitis-idaea Koralle), and highbush (V. corymbosum Bluecrop), half-highbush ((V. corymbosum x V. angustifolium) Northsky) and lowbush (V. angustifolium Blomidon) blueberries presented a 2-peak pattern. The first peak was in early July for highbush and half-highbush blueberries, and in mid-July for lowbush blueberry and lingonberry.
