Pompano Beach, Fla.-based Southern Specialties is preparing for the British Columbia blueberry season.

“I have just returned from the fields,” Martin Maldonado, category manager for berries at Southern Specialties, said in the release. “The crop promises to be excellent with great color, bloom and flavor.”

Duke, elliott and others are among the varieties that are available in full pint and 18-ounce clamshells.

Southern Specialties ships blueberries year round. The British Columbia deal winds up North American production before moving to South America, according to a news release.
