Pick Your Own at Local Farms:

Farmers' Picking Tips:
• Look for blueberries that are fully blue and don’t have any purple or green.
• Once picked, leave the container open so moisture doesn’t form in the container.
Pick blackberries with a dull finish. Blackberries that are shiny still need another day or half-day to ripen.
• Pick raspberries that are a darker shade of red.
• The easier to pull off the bush, the more ripe the raspberry is.
• Watch out for thorns!
