Which side of the fruit debate do you fall on?
Lawmakers are expected to debate two bills that would designate either the cherry or the blueberry as Michigan's official state fruit Tuesday.
The Senate Government Operations committee is listening to testimony Tuesday afternoon from Sen. Rebekah Warren (D-Ann Arbor) that would make the cherry the state fruit. Also expected to testify, Sen. Tonya Schuitmaker (R-Lawton) , who thinks the blueberry should be the state fruit.
Cherries are popular in the northern part of the state, while the west side of Michigan has several blueberry farms.
The committee will also discuss a bill sponsored by Sen. Bert Johnson (D-Detroit), which would designate Mackinac Island fudge as the official state sweet.
