Blueberry – Very Large Variety
Q: I’ve heard of a new variety of blueberry which is very large. Can you remind me of the name?
A: Blueberries are now the number one fruit crop grown in Georgia, far outranking peaches and apples. This delicious blue fruit brings Georgia farmers more than 250 million dollars each year. University of Georgia researcher Scott Nesmith has bred and introduced several improved varieties of blueberry, including ‘Titan’, which can approach the size of a quarter. ‘Titan’ is licensed to several wholesale growers, who supply retail nurseries. Ask at your local garden center or look online for a source of this outstanding fruit.
