Many years of seeking what would best represent this land, our family began cultivating these 4 acres in 2013. By spring of 2015, Crimson Acres was established and the blueberries were planted! We currently have 3.75 acres of blueberries, consisting of five different cultivars and a picking season from late June through August. The cultivars that Crimson Acres offers are all Northern High Bush;
Duke: these produce large firm berries with a mild flavor, generally harvested end of June through the beginning of July.
Draper: these produce large firm berries that are sweet and have a concentrated flavor, generally harvested beginning of July through the end of July.
Top Shelf: these produce the largest berries we offer, these also have a firm fruit that is juicy, generally harvested beginning of July through the end of July.
Cargo: these produce large firm berries that are a bit tart and maintain their firmness and flavor even when frozen, generally harvested the end of July through the beginning of August.
Last Call: these produce large blueberries with the classic “sweet blueberry” flavor, generally harvested the middle of August through the end of August.
Note: The ripening of the blueberries is dependent upon the weather God blesses us with each year, and the dates for harvest can be moved up or back by a couple weeks if we have an early, warm spring or a late, colder spring. Watch the website for picking dates.
We offer u-pick on all varieties as they ripen, or orders can be placed for pre-picked berries.
At Crimson Acres we have plenty of graveled parking located right next to the blueberry fields, as well as picking containers to use or purchase, and a bathroom area.
