QUALITY CHANGES AND LIMITED MARKETING SEASON EFFECTS ON THE DEMAND FOR FRESH BLUEBERRIES

Antonia L. Hoelper and Michele Marra

Northeastern Journal of Agricultural and Resource Economics, 1991, vol. 20, issue 2, 7

Abstract: This study examines the notion that fresh-fruit prices follow a time trend separate from the effect of seasonal supply changes over the marketing season. In particular, quality changes and a limited marketing season are hypothesized to contribute to the seasonal changes in demand. The empirical results support these hypotheses for the Boston fresh-blueberry market.
