Early southern highbush blueberry cultivars and selections will be ripening for this beautiful display of one of North Carolina’s most important crops. Researchers will share updates on the 2024 crop, “hands-on” identification of diseases, insects, and weeds, and most importantly, give attendees an opportunity to view and evaluate advanced selections from the NC State blueberry breeding program.
