    Actually it's not partridge berries I'm wondering about, it's what Newfoundlanders call partridge berries. I've had a look on google and I'm convinced the two arnt the same.

  4. I am wondering what those small ( about 1 cm ) white worms are that crawl out of the berries when they are picked early in the fall? There are no worms when the berries are picked later in October.

    Did anyone ever answer the question regarding worms in partridge berries in Newfoundland?

    Thanks, for the reply, of course it created a new question.
    If these worms are the blueberry version, does that mean there are worms in our blueberries as well?
    I've never seen worms in any of the blueberries I've picked, and this was a banner year for blueberries. I've got a dozen gallons in my freezer.
    Am I supposed to be checking them for worms as well?
