California has recently become an important blueberry producer and now accounts for about one-half of fresh U.S. organic blueberry production. California’s “organic premium” that recently averaged $2.28 per pound over the conventional free on board (FOB) price of $2.92 per pound varies by package and over time. Growth of organic blueberry production is expected to continue.
