Blueberry Update July 25, 2013

• Posted on July 25th, 2013 •      

Liberty blueberries are here!

We are currently in our 1st picking of Liberty blueberries and 3rd picking of Draper. Liberty blueberries are recognized for their large size, outstanding firmness and attractive sky-blue color. See pictures below of Liberty-variety blueberries on Oregon Berry’s farm. Weather has been normal July temperatures with no precipitation in the forecast.

 

Did you know? Blueberries are a rich source of antioxidants called anthocyanins, which discourage blood clots from forming, warding off heart attacks. They also appear to improve night vision and to slow macular degeneration by strengthening tiny blood vessels in the back of the eye.
