•Highbush blueberry fruit clusters were shaded during either the first or second sigmoidal growth stages.•Shading during the second stage, but not during the first one, led to a substantial delay in fruit growth and harvest.•Peduncle girdling during the first stage drastically impaired fruit growth.•Only a moderate inhibitory effect was observed when girdling was performed before the second stage.•Contrary to previous assumptions, the contribution of fruit photosynthesis to its own growth increases along ontogeny.
