British Columbia blueberry season extended until mid-SeptemberBlueberries are Canada's most exported fruit, and British Columbia produces about 96 percent of the country's entire supply. The late start to summer means blueberry farms will still be harvesting the fruit into the fall, On The Coast's food columnist Gail Johnson said.
"It's a distant memory now, but remember that long winter we had? Everything was off to a late start this year," Johnson said. "The good news now is that the season is expected to go until at least mid-September."
Blueberry farming is a thriving industry and the B.C. Blueberry Council represents over 700 blueberry growers in the province. Growing and picking the berries is not always an easy task though.
With blueberry season lasting longer than usual, Johnson suggested Vancouverites visit a small farm that's open to the public and try their hand at harvesting the berries themselves.
