The annual harvest of one of Nova Scotia’s most important horticultural crops is now under way.
David Sangster, manager of the Wild Blueberry Producers Association of Nova Scotia, said wild blueberry harvesting began in western areas of the province last week, while growers in Colchester and Cumberland started on Monday.

Sangster said growers across the province are looking forward to a good quality, average crop of about 30 million pounds or more if weather conditions co-operate during the harvest.
