FORT VALLEY, Ga. -- Georgia's blueberry crops have had a better season in 2018 than they did last year, thanks to improved weather conditions.
In 2017, blueberry crops were affected by a warm winter and then a late freeze - but this year, they've bounced back.
Georgia produces the second highest amount of blueberry crops in the country.
Southern Georgia farmers produce blueberries commercially, while many midstate farms are family-owned operations that allow the public to come in and pick their own.
While blueberry crops did experience some cold weather this year, there were no damaging freezes. This past winter was also cool enough for crops to get enough chill hours necessary for a good harvest season.
July is National Blueberry Month. Find out where you can get Georgia blueberries at georgiagrown.com.
