The Lagomarsino Family planted their first Blueberry block in the fall of 2002, and the blueberry acreage has continued to grow ever since. The current blocks consist of nine different southern highbush varieties with Emerald, Jewel and Star being the main producers. Southern highbush blueberries are low chill varieties, while also having a greater tolerance to high summer temperatures.
These growing conditions make them particularly suitable for our valley, while also allowing them to thrive and develop superior fruit quality. Highbush varieties grow in clusters and usually dont all ripen at once. Blueberry bushes typically bear fruit from May through October, while our varieties provide us harvestable fruit during May and June. Each harvest season, the Lagomarsinos pack their own fresh blueberries, while also offering custom packing to local growers.
Blueberries have received more attention in recent years because of their many nutritional benefits. Blueberries are packed with Vitamin C, they’re high in fiber, virtually non-fat, and an excellent source of manganese and antioxidants. As their popularity rises, so does our belief in their continued success within our farming operation.
We welcome any questions or comments you may have regarding our blueberries.
