Blueberry Season Update
California blueberries are extremely scarce and production out of the Nipomo and Lompoc areas in Southern California can be expected to improve in December. On the import side Chilean blueberry season has just barely begun. We are seeing production starting out of the main growing regions of Maule and BioBio where the Mediterranean climate is perfect for growing blueberries. By the end of December and into early January there will be better supply to start off the new year. As the season progresses production continues to move south to the Northern end of the Patagonia region. We should see blueberries from Chile through March and perhaps part of April.
