BLUEBERRIES

Availability

Mid-June until early August.

Picking Tips

Pick the berries with darkest blue color. Make sure the blueberry comes off the bush easily. If it does not, the bottom of the blueberry may still be yellow or pink. Look towards the bottom of the bush or walk a few rows into the field for a better selection of ripe berries.

Storing Tips

Store blueberries in a sealed container and keep refrigerated. When freezing blueberries, rinse them, dry them, and place in an air-tight freezer container. After rinsing, another option is to place the blueberries on a cookie sheet, and place them in the freezer for 10 minutes. Then, remove the blueberries from the cookie sheet, and place them into an air-tight freezer container. This way, the blueberries do not stick to one another while freezing.
