Green Berries on Blueberry Bush

blueberry fruit

Q: Our blueberry bushes are ten years old. This year, a good many of the
green berries are fallIng off if you lightly touch them while picking the ripe
ones. Any ideas? 

A: The most common cause of premature berry drop is poor pollination. Try
to remember whether you had heavy rains during blueberry bloom time. Rain
could have inhibited insect pollinators and might have damaged individual
flowers. Without pollination, young berries don’t mature.
