Blueberry growers rush to keep up with harvest
Despite high yields and good-quality berries, a delayed harvest and low prices are impacting blueberry growers.
Blueberry growers started harvesting in late May and early June, about two weeks behind schedule.
“The prolonged cold winter delayed blooming. We usually see blooms the last week of February, but blooms didn’t appear this year until the third week of March,” said John Braswell, Mississippi State University horticulture specialist at the Coastal Research and Extension Center in Biloxi. “Once it got warm, everything came in at once, and growers are scrambling a bit to get it all harvested.”
