How To Pick Blueberries:

  • Pick berries that are completely blue at the stem.
  • Pick berries that come off easily.
  • Blueberries have a powdery coating that protects the fruit. This is natural and not a spray.
  • Green berries will not ripen after picking.
  • The best picking is usually at the far ends of the rows. (Figures.)
  • Watch your children and stay with them at all times. Teach them how to pick ripe berries.
  • You may taste the berries as you pick, but please pay for any extra berries that you eat. Be fair to the farm.

When You Get Home:

  • Refrigerate your berries as soon as possible.
  • Store blueberries in an airtight container with a paper towel to absorb moisture. They will keep for up to a week.
  • Do not wash blueberries until you are ready to eat them.
  • Do not wash blueberries before freezing. If you do wash them, you can dry or freeze on a cookie sheet before packaging for long-term freezing.
