Notable producer of these fruits in Europe is also Germany with production of 10 000 tons.

Production drop in Poland in season 2016 comes from harsh weather in 2015 ( very hot and dry summer). Winter in 2015-16 was hard too, very warm December and very fast temperature drop (to -25) on beginning of January 2016 resulted in damaging flower buds. These two factors resulted in production drop, even with increasing area of plantation in Poland.

Data from IBO show that production of blueberry on the world is still rising and in 2016 it was 650 000 tons, 100 000 tons more than two years earlier. Forecast show that in 2019 world production of blueberry can go over 900 000 tons.
