Blueberry Bushes


Zone North Wilkesboro, NC | Anonymous added on June 29, 2018 | Answered

Our blueberry bushes are full of berries. Someone sprayed Roundup under and around the bushes. Will this make the berries unsafe? Can we still pick and eat the berries from these bushes? Will the bushes survive?

    If the foliage was not sprayed, or green stems/canes and you're sure it was RoundUP then the herbicide will not have entered the plant tissues. A sure way to tell is if the plant does not have any browning leaves in a couple of weeks then it has not been contaminated. Wash your fruit and enjoy.
