Global Fruit and Vegetable Site Carries Blueberry Update

The Fresh Plaza news website for companies operating in the global fruit and vegetable sector carried an article recently posted in the Ellsworth American’s Fenceviewer website that included comments from University of Maine Cooperative Extension educator and blueberry specialist David Yarborough. Yarborough said that the lack of rain in August forced some blueberry growers without irrigation to end their seasons early with smaller berries this year. Overall, Yarborough noted, the wild blueberry crop was 10 to15 percent larger than last year’s.
