Some of the industry's newest blueberry varieties are emerging from breeding and nursery company California Berry Genetics. In partnership with renowned University of Georgia horticulturist Scott NeSmith, owners Greg and Monica Willems developed the newest blueberry seedling program of the organization.

California Berry Genetics currently offers three exclusive varieties of blueberries to commercial producers in the United States: Early Duchess, Sweet Duchess and Blue Duchess, which is also offered in Mexico. According to a press release, the company's new varieties are high-yielding blueberries that can be harvested mechanically, taking into account labor costs and food safety during the operation.

California Berry Genetics also owns exclusive rights to a new type of berry that hit the market this year called Pink Cosmo. This berry is available under the brand Farm to Table Berries from Willems for the consumer, and has a striking color and a delicious flavor.

in the fall of 2024 , California Berry Genetics will launch five new commercial blueberry varieties that possess extra large size, thick skin, crunchy texture and exceptional flavor.

Currently the organization offers three exclusive varieties of blueberries to commercial producers in the United States: Early Duchess, Sweet Duchess and Blue Duchess, which is also offered in Mexico.

The press release goes on to note that California Berry Genetics sells top-of-the-line blueberry cultivars that are innovative and created for the success of producers .
