Our blueberry crop is ruined this year.The flowers did not drop off, and almost every berry is that way. The flowers are still hanging on and if it has fallen off, there is a short spike left in the center of the berry. we have ended up just throwing them out.

I haven't seen anything similar in my research, but a soil test might be in order to determine if there is a mineral deficiency. Visit with your local extension agent and see if anyone else in the area is experiencing this odd blueberry behavior, too.
