Blueberry Season Continues Fresh blueberries last all summer at Blue Pearl. The heritage varieties of rabbiteye blueberries planted almost 30 years ago produced their biggest crop since we began to tend them, and you can taste their incredibly delicious flavor for yourself. We've picked most of the Blues, and the Pearls are just coming in, along with the earliest of our Grower's Reserve variety. You can count on just-picked berries to satisfy your appetite whenever you see us. Blueberry pie, blueberry crumble, blueberry salsa...check our recipe page for summer favorites.
Freshly picked blueberries, our richly complex blueberry chipotle savory barbecue sauce, and blueberry compote, along with wildflower honey and our buzz line of skin products are available at the Pearl and at the Charleston Farmers Market on Saturdays and the Mt Pleasant Farmers Market on Tuesdays beside Moultrie Middle School off Coleman Blvd. You can also order online.
Thanks for another great time at our fifth annual Lowcountry Bluesberry Jam and Blueberry Festival. Congratulations to Justin and Lindsay Mattingly, this year's winners of the Blueberry Toss at 32 feet, and to Baily C., who picked the largest blueberry at the festival. We will see the fine musicians here again, and you can listen to Dr. Dixon, BhD, The Blues Physician, playing the harp a little later in his visit with Shrimp City Slim on our YouTube channel. We especially appreciate the Awendaw-McClellanville Fire Department, Fresh Future Farm, and the Friends of Coastal South Carolina with their sea turtle team for coming out to be with us.
