John Duval, SunnyRidge’s technical services manager, said Georgia quality looks high.

He said the growing regions experienced excessive chill hours, which made for a good bloom set and reset in most cases.

The USDA in late April reported flats of 12 4.4-ounce cups with lids of medium-large blueberries from central Florida selling for $20-22.85, with 12 6-ounce cups with lids of medium-large fetching $26-26.85.

Last year in late April, the USDA reported flats of 12 4.4-ounce cups with lids selling for $26-28.
Georgia’s blueberry deal normally runs through early July.
