Retired University of Georgia blueberry horticulturist Gerard Krewer worked for years to help get Georgia’s blueberry industry off the ground and, today, his contributions have been recognized with his own blueberry cultivar.
In the wake of a cold spring and more than 35 inches of rain, Georgia’s blueberry crop has prevailed. This year’s crop did not see any problems with bugs or birds, and the excess rainfall did not negatively affect the crop.
When it comes to choosing fruit, most people reach for the biggest piece. Titan™, a new blueberry variety bred by a University of Georgia scientist, makes that an easy task. It produces berries two to four times the size of average blueberries.
