August is Fresh Maine Wild Blueberry Season.
Grab ‘em before they’re gone.
Harvested from the barrens of Maine, Wild Blueberries can be enjoyed fresh for a one-month window in August.
Maine Wild Blueberries are one of only three native fruits to North America, growing where mother nature put them more than 10,000 years ago—in the cold, harsh barrens of Downeast Maine. For generations, Maine families nurture these wild berries that boast an intense blueberry taste; ranging from tangy tartness to succulent sweetness. Ordinary blueberries just can’t give you the same kind of yum.
When buying blueberries, make sure to look for the little ones that pack a ton of taste.
