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

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.
