Growing and harvesting
Nature's Pride blueberries come from different parts of the world. The fastest-growing production country is Peru, where they can first be harvested within a year after planting. In other parts of the world, the plants need 2 to 3 years. The fruit-bearing bushes of the blueberry – a member of the heather family – can reach a height of 1.50 to 2.50 metres.
Blueberries grow in clusters. Harvesting is done by hand, very carefully because they are fragile. The berries are sorted for quality and size at the production locations. They are then weighed, packed and cooled.
The bushes can produce fruit for decades. In commercial cultivation, however, the lifespan is limited to 7 to 10 years because production decreases after that. The amount of fruit per bush varies, Depending on the plant's age and variety, the pruning method and the climate.
