This event is free and open to the public.

Blueberry is the fastest growing berry crop in many states including North Carolina, Georgia and Florida. Market demand for blueberry continues to grow, and profit potential for growing locally grown blueberry is considerable. One major issue for blueberry growers is the planting of the new blueberry cultivars (varieties) that are becoming available with superior fruit size, taste, color, and pest and disease tolerance.

At VSU’s Randolph Farm a collection of 45 different blueberry cultivars are under study. All are different in terms of cluster density, productivity, plant structure, bush size, vigor, etc. This is an opportunity to see these cultivars and decide which one may be suitable for your future blueberry production.
