British Columbia production should begin in mid-July, Crafton said.

Oregon Berry Packing’s blueberries should run into October and its blackberry deal until about mid-September, Malensky predicted.

The cool weather should have no adverse effect on quality and actually should make fruit size better, Malensky said. Hurst also reported good sizing on blueberries.

It was too early to forecast quality and size for the 2008 Oregon crop, Crafton said June 16.
