Berries also were smaller than usual this season, Wilson said. This year, fruit should be medium to medium-large — big but not so big that quality is affected. In mid-October Habelman reported exceptional fruit structure and overall quality, Wilson said.

On Oct. 16, cartons of 24 12-ounce film bags of early black cranberries from Massachusetts sold for $34 on the New England Produce Center terminal, compared to $34-36 last year at the same time.

Our Ricker Hill cranberries are plentiful, we dry harvest and sell to fresh markets at Hannaford stores throughout Maine.

Nancy, would you like to sell any of your cranberries to a wholesaler in Vermont. Are they organic? Please let me know.
