It is the most wonderful time of the year! That’s right, its Arkansas blueberry season,
June-July. When selecting berries, choose those that are plump and firm with a light
silvery “bloom.” This bloom is a natural protective wax on the berries. Select ripe
blueberries since unripe berries do not become sweeter after they are picked. Ripe
blueberries have a light blue to blue-black color. The deepness of the blue color
depends on the variety. Red or green berries are not ripe and have a sour flavor.
Blueberries should be refrigerated immediately after harvest. Decayed or moldy blueberries
should be removed before the blueberries are refrigerated. You will not want to wash
blueberries before storing because moisture allows mold to grow. Instead, wash blueberries
just prior to using.
For freezing and canning directions, contact your local county extension office.
