The frost in Poland could have a longer effect over the course of the season, Kozlowski explains. “The frost damage reduced the crop of early varieties by approximately 30 to 40% and the cold summer has moved the main part of the season forward. Therefore, the harvest has been slightly delayed, but by no more than two weeks. At the moment Polish blueberries are already reaching destinations and are doing well, but the market share balance has changed. It will depend on the weather situation in late July and the start of August whether the sales have picked up.”
