Blueberry has emerged as a leading health food with farmers reporting they can earn up to Sh8m a year per acre of blueberry bushes.A single blueberry bush produces up to 5 kg, with a single kilo trading in the market for around Sh1, 600. An acre can accommodate more than 1000 plants spaced 6 feet apart. Once the bushes start producing fruit, they moved into continual harvest for the bushes’ lifetime, which is 8 to 10 years.
