Blueberry season is in full swing and Chet's Blueberry Farm shared tips with us for picking the best blueberries and proper care for them once you bring them home.
Chet Skippy, owner of Chet's Blueberry Farm, described to us that a ripe blueberry will be entirely blue and should come off the bush without much effort. An unripe berry is typically white, green, entirely red, or has a purple color around the stem.
Some blueberries will continue to ripen after bringing them home. The best way to go about that would be by placing an apple, banana, or avocado in a paper bag with the berries.
Be sure to wash your blueberries when you plan on enjoying them immediately, but other options to enjoy later include freezing them or using them to bake or make jam.
Blueberry season starts mid-July and usually lasts about 4 to 6 weeks.
