Picking blueberries at Wilmot Orchards

This blue-on-blue photo was taken at Wilmot Orchards where blueberries are now ready for the picking, seven days a week. The bushes here are high enough that you don’t get stiff from bending over and the fruit is so abundant that it doesn’t take long to fill a basket. Best of all, there’s a great little café where you can reward your helpers with a slice of blueberry cheesecake or a cone of organic blueberry ice cream. Eight varieties of Highbush blueberries each ripen at slightly different times to expand the picking season until Labour Day or the berries run out.
