  • Traditional varieties of Blueberries were produced in geographic areas where chill hours (cold hours) were available. 

  • In recent years, blueberry production has extended to areas close to the Equator, where there is limited or no chill hours at all . 

  • This has been possible with varieties that are capable of adapting to these new conditions and with new genetics especially dedicated to this type of climate conditions. 

  • This expansion has made blueberries available 52 weeks in different markets.
