Blueberries on the South Shore

Blueberries on the South Shore

With the opening of many blueberry farms in the region, the end of July and beginning of August now goes hand-in-hand with PYO (Pick-Your-Own) all over the territory.

Blueberries_QuebecIt has taken about fifteen years for blueberry production to really work on Quebec’s South shore.

Today, there are 72 hectares and 250,000 plants as well as 60 producers in the region. Something is sure, if you live on the Southside, there is a blueberry farm close to your place.

From the end of July to September, the Corymbs blueberry is collected (also known as the Giant Blueberry).

Even though spring has been rough this year, the fruits look great and this year should average the historical medium.

Globally, the estimated value of the year is $3.5 Million with a majority of blueberries sold directly to the consumers.

Yum.
