You have heard that saying, “variety is the spice of life”
but did you know variety is also the spice of blueberries?
Really, just ask any blueberry connoisseur…. you will hear all
the reasons why one person likes the big Chandlers, the sweet Dukes or the
plump Legacy. And, each of them are right because it is all about preference.
That said, it is fine to have a favorite but do not be
afraid to venture out a little and try some of the other varieties. You may be surprised
with what they have to offer.
Here is a glance at the blueberry array you will find at
Outback Farm: Duke, Blue Gold, Blue Crop, Blue Jay, Legacy, Toro, Chandler, Elliot,
Vernon, Titan and last but not least, Pink Lemonade.
So when the blueberry picking season rolls around again next
year, typically mid to end of May through mid to end of July, take the opportunity
to introduce yourself to the delightful collection we have been watering,
pruning, mulching, weeding and nurturing for you.
Season Coming to a Close
Saturday, July 14 will be the last day for u-pick blueberries at Outback Farm for the 2018 season. There are no pre-picked blueberries available, sold the last gallon just this morning. Thanks to each and every one of you for making this a great season!
It's Blueberry Pickin' Time
At Outback Farm in Pryor, OK it's time to pick the best ever blueberries. Our first official picking day for the 2018 season was May 31st and we've been going strong ever since. Blueberries came little later than years past and that allowed some of our blueberry fans to enjoy the daily fresh cut asparagus also available at Outback Farm.
"Dukes" are the first of our blueberry varieties to ripen. They are plump and delicious...especially when chilled. The blues, that is, Bluegold, Bluecrop and Bluejay are the next to ripen. I'm told the Bluejays are particularly sweet this year, give them a taste when you come out. Other varieties will be coming along shortly so if you have a favorite stay tuned to see when they will be ready to pick.
