Beginning approximately in early to mid June and lasting through mid to late July, Bennett Blueberry Season typically lasts for a total of 4 to 6 weeks. With a harvest window of about 2 to 3 weeks per varietal, the ripening times of our different Bennett Blueberry Varieties tend to overlap quite a bit, meaning multiple varieties are often available simultaneously. These dates are approximate and do vary from year to year, so it is important to contact us by phone at 302 732 3358, or check our "Current Pick Your Own Status" on our homepage, prior to your visit, to ensure that we are open for picking. Please visit Bennett Blueberry Varieties for a description and estimated availability of all six of our luscious varietals.
How to Pick Bennett Blueberries
Select the largest, uniformly blue, Bennett Blueberries with no hint of purple or white on any part of the berry, including the backside. A full, deep indigo color is the best indicator of the ripest and sweetest Bennett Blueberries. A ripe berry should easily fall into the palm of your hand when picked. Our bushes are meticulously cared for to create a delightful, easy and intensely-sweet picking experience that might just be the highlight of your summer.
