Jalisco is the leading producing state in volume, with 14,563 tons in 2018, and Puebla ranks sixth in the national production.
Blueberry production has increased in several municipalities of Pueblas, such as Zacatlan, where there are 180 families dedicated to this crop, Atzingo, Xoxonacatla, and Xilotzingo, as their weather conditions and orography are ideal to grow this fruit.
In the last five years, cultivation of this crop in Puebla increased by 273% and currently exceeds 885 tons.
The fruit is grown from May to September because of the humidity that prevails in the climate.
