How To Pick Blueberries

  • Pick only the ripe blueberries. Blueberries will not ripen after picking. Please leave any unripe blueberries for future blueberry pickers.
  • The ripe blueberries are the ones that pull off the bush easily. If they are not ripe, they will not be sweet.
  • Sometimes the berries are in clusters and some are ripe and others are not. Please do not strip the berries. The ripe ones will fall off and the unripe ones will stay and ripen another day.
  • Look into the center of the bushes and down below under the leaves. Gently bend the high branches over to get to the berries that are hard to reach.
