When you come out to pick, first taste the fruit. It's what we do! That's how we can tell if the sugar is balanced on the berries. Also, remember to pick with your eyes as well as your fingers. Eyes see the blue, but the fingers feel if the berry is ready to be picked. That is why you pick by touch, too. Remember to tickle the berries, and the ripe, sweet fruit will roll off the stem. See you in the field!
