Blueberry ripening stalled - thoughts?
Cooler, wetter, later than normal spring/summer here.
Blueberries - mostly rabbiteye and Southern highbush - set good crops, and the older, established rabbiteyes ripened their crops rapidly and were done.
Have several younger plants, put in 2-3 years ago - Brightwell, and Beckyblue(I think) that set good crops, and looked as though they were going to be late ripening. Berries have sized up decently, but for the past 3 week or so, it's as if they're stuck in a time warp - berries are red, but not progressing to blue/purple. They're not shriveled, like mummyberry - just seem to be hung up in the ripening process.
Any thoughts from you blueberry affectionados, as to what's going on with them?
