Fresh News From Fifer Orchards

by Dave on June 11, 2009

Fresh Delaware Blueberries!

We picked the first blueberries of the season yesterday. These early berries are sweet and large in size and flavor. They’re now available in our stores by the pint or the quart. In addition, we hope to open our U-Pick blueberry patch on Saturday, June 20th.

This is a great time in the season when strawberries and blueberries overlap in local production. Enjoy the combination of high antioxidants, fiber, and vitamin C by combining the two fruits in your favorite recipe or just fresh in a bowl with whipped cream. Simple Goodness!

DYK? Blueberries are related to azaleas and rhododendrons
