What does September mean for BC blueberries, fresh or frozen?
This year, BC blueberries had an amazing harvest season, and we hope you got the chance to taste BC’s best! With the fresh season coming to an end, you may be wondering: where will I get my blueberry fix?
Fret not- welcome the chillier weather with BC frozen blueberries! Frozen BC blueberries are picked from the same high-quality farms as fresh highbush blueberries; however, they are available year-round in the frozen food aisle. BC produces some of the highest quality blueberries in the world, with some farms boasting nearly a century of experience. BC’s environment allows highbush blueberries an exceptional size and amazing taste.
Frozen blueberries are sourced from the same blueberry farms you might enjoy visiting in the summer for U-Pick, except these berries, frozen in time, can be enjoyed year-round. Pick up a bag of frozen BC blueberries and enjoy them for an energy-boosting breakfast or healthy mid-day snack! Look for the "BC Grown" logo on the freezer bag, and check that the country of origin says "Canada,” to be sure you're supporting local growers.
Frozen blueberries are also available direct from some local farms. (Check with individual farms for frozen availability).
