picking tips: 

We think blueberries get sweeter after they sit for few days. Different varieties have different ripening patterns. In general, pick berries when plump and fully blue. If there is a hint of red or white on berry, it will likely be tart. Even fully blue berries can be tart so make sure they are plump!
