The first English Elsanta strawberries grown under glass are being commercially picked this week, according to distributor AFI. Initial berry size is reported as excellent. At the same time the delayed Spanish crop is beginning to make headway after poor weather conditions led to limited picking and signs of botrytis. Meanwhile New Zealand is seeing a resurgence in its blueberry industry with the introduction of new varieties which, with protected cropping, have extended the season by as much as six weeks, according to its HortResearch Institute. It is also looking at the potential for boysenberries and cranberries. {{FRESH PRODUCE }}
