Pocono Blueberries
So since I saw another post it reminded me to ask. Anyone know if the blueberries are ripe around the I80 corridoor yet?? Always enjoy taking my kids up there each year for a massive pick fest of a couple hours. Good family fun but I missed it completely last year or else it never happened.

Re: Pocono Blueberries
If your talking about the high bush not yet. The low bush will be ready now.

I think the schedule is a bit early this year for blueberries. I took my parents for a ride last Saturday and we picked about 6 quarts off the high bushes. Our spots are a few miles from Blakeslee Corners.

The bushes were about 1/3 to 1/2 ripened berries.

I'd say this weekend will be prime time.

Ya, I'm talking highbush around the Hickory Run / Turnpike / R80 interchance area. May plan a little day trip type of thing next weekend or possibly this weekend.

Next weekend might be your better shot.

Re: Pocono Blueberries
I'm planning on making a big run this Saturday am most likely but possibly Sunday. Hopefully I will not be too late again. Really hate to drive and 45 minutes to an hour only to find nothing again like last year

Re: Pocono Blueberries
I was just at Ricketts Glen and Lackawanna SP late last week and the high bush berries at both places were close, but not showing any color change yet. If I were gauging the berries in that region based on what I saw, I'd say this weekend at the earliest. Next weekend for sure.

Re: Pocono Blueberries
Thanks Ship! That is an quality note there. Maybe enough to postpone me by one week.
