“There will be more exciting advanced selections coming through the pipeline shortly”, said Bob Gabriel, owner of the Oregon based breeding company and nursery.

Rupert Hargreaves of Global Plant Genetics said, “This is an exciting development in the blueberry world. We have a renowned international presence in the management of Intellectual Property with a strong focus on our blueberry portfolio. The quality of the plant breeding, the commitment of the team at Oregon Blueberry Farms and Nursery, as well as their desire to internationalize their blueberry genetics makes this a perfect combination for our two companies.”
