Blueberry Update July 11, 2013

• Posted on July 11th, 2013 •      

Fresh, firm and sweet blueberries!

We are currently in our 1st picking of Draper and high-elevation Dukes. Dukes grown in higher elevations are slower to ripen with the cooler temperatures. We are still shipping export-quality Duke and Draper blueberries. See pictures below of Draper-variety blueberries. Next week’s weather forecast calls for normal July temperatures with no precipitation.

Did you know? Blueberries are an excellent source of manganese. Manganese plays an important role in bone development and converting fats, proteins and carbohydrates into energy.

      Hi Carol,

      Thank you for your inquiry. Your blueberries were grown on a local farm called “A Hill of a Lot of Blueberries.” Grown on Chehalem Mountain in Cornelius, Oregon, these Duke-variety blueberries are prized for their mildly sweet flavor, crisp flesh and very firm texture.

      Can you taste the difference of an Oregon Berry? Share your comments and we’ll post them on our blog’s Blueberry Updates! Enjoy your blues.
