There is a large field of high bush blueberries at West Moira Orchards. You can pick your own from the middle of July until the end of August. The Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs has information about blueberries.
High bush blueberries grow in the milder parts of Ontario. Snow help protect them in winter. Berries develop in clusters of five to 10 berries and ripen over a period of four to six weeks. They should not be harvested too early. After the berries turn completely blue, leave them on the bushes for three to seven days to develop their full flavor and sugar content. Birds can devastate a crop and sometime they have to bring in a falconer with hawks to scare away the birds. Blueberries are high in antioxidants when compared to 60 other fresh fruits and vegetables.and may help lower the risk of developing age-related diseases such as Parkinson's and Alzheimer's.
