✿ Choose blueberries that are firm, dry, plump and smooth-skinned. Color should be deep purple-blue to blue-black.
✿ Blueberries do not ripen after picking.
✿ Avoid soft, shriveled or moldy fruit.
✿ Fresh blueberries are available year round but might be the highest quality and lowest price when available locally. Peak season is July to September. Try farm stands or pick your own at a u-pick farm.
✿ Frozen blueberries may be a cheaper option when the local season has passed. It is very easy to freeze your own.
