We had several hard frosts during blueberry bloom & are watching the fields to see how much damage was done. If all goes well the blueberries should be ready about July 5.
A pint - 2 cups - of blueberries weighs about 12 ounces, so 5 lbs is about 6.5-7 pints
We are not able to offer picked blueberries - only pick-your-own.
8-10 is a good minimum age for picking blueberries. Blueberries ripen unevenly in clusters and you need fine-motor skills to pick the ripe blueberries while leaving the rest to finish ripening.
Plan to sit or kneel on the ground part of the time, or bring a kneeler or a light stool to sit
on while picking; only some of our blueberries are tall enough to pick standing up.
Pick only the darkest blue berries that release easily at your touch.
If you have to tug, it's not ripe yet!
