Between our import program and our domestic position, Kopke offers a high-quality blueberry program for ten months a year.
Cultivated fresh Blueberries are the variety usually found in the grocery store. Blueberries selected should be firm, plump, nourished berries in dry, unstained containers. The berries themselves should be free of moisture as moisture accelerates decay. Color is the best indicator of blueberry maturity and fully developed flavor, so avoid blueberries that are green, and thus immature. Blueberries should be a deep, purple-blue to blue-black color with a whitish, dusty looking skin. They should be round and marble-sized. Reddish berries are not ripe, but may be used in cooking.
