Yarborough Talks to Ellsworth American about Blueberry Demand

David Yarborough, a wild blueberry specialist with the University of Maine Cooperative Extension, spoke with The Ellsworth American about the demand for blueberries. Yarborough said frost early in the growing season in Quebec reduced by half the province’s blueberry harvest. He said a smaller harvest in Canada will result in more demand for Maine’s wild blueberries; estimates predict a higher than average crop of 90 million pounds.
