Elizabeth White: The Blueberry Queen

Elizabeth Coleman White made it her life’s work to bring her beloved blueberries to the mainstream agricultural market.

Picking Blueberries
If you have a lot of blueberries to pick, consider investing in a blueberry rake. The little tines will scoop the berries right off the plant and deposit them into a chamber for safekeeping. There are many beautiful antique blueberry rakes available online, and Johnny’s Selected Seeds sells a modern, lightweight rake that’s handcrafted in Maine (www.JohnnySeeds.com).
