Blueberry Update June 6, 2013

• Posted on June 6th, 2013 •      

We see blues!

We see blues! After a very warm week, a few Duke blueberries have begun turning blue. Blueberries will continue coloring over the next few weeks and we expect the Dukes to size-up nicely with a cooler forecast. This looks like a great crop! While blueberries are still ahead of schedule, we hope to offer ETAs as early as June 26th. Please contact Trevor with questions.

Did you know? Antioxidants work to neutralize free radicals — unstable molecules linked to the development of cancer, cardiovascular disease and other age-related conditions such as Alzheimer’s. Substances in blueberries called polyphenols, specifically the anthocyanins that give the fruit its blue hue, contribute to antioxidant activity.
