The wild blueberry is Maine’s official state fruit and we sure do love them. Be it in muffins, in pancakes and just by the handful shoved into our mouths as quickly as possible, we can’t get enough. They of course taste even better if you pick them yourself and the season typically runs from late July into early October. Sometimes you might get lucky and come across them while out on a hike. But if you want a sure thing, there are pick-your-own spots all over the state including Winslow Farm in Falmouth, Alexander’s Wild Maine Blueberries in Greenfield and Libby and Son U-Picks in Limerick.
