The best Blueberries in Texas are grown at Winona Orchards, nestled in the beautiful rolling hills of east Texas. If you like the peaches, you are going to love their blueberries.Winona Orchards

Winona Orchards grows five varieties of blueberries:

  • Tifblue
  • Brightwell
  • Premier
  • Alapaha
  • Climax

Winona Orchards blueberry bushes are planted in alternating rows so the bumble bees and honey bees can pollinate them. The bees work together to pollinate the blueberry bushes allowing the blueberries to grow. In the spring, beautiful white clusters of flowers pop up over the bushes. First the bumble bees crack open the tiny flowers. Next, the honey bees gather the pollen and transfer it between the male and female parts. Each blossom eventually becomes a blueberry.Texas Blueberries

The blueberries ripen at different times so harvesting takes up to seven passes per bush. First the blueberries are hard green, then reddish-purple, and finally blue. Sweet, ready to be picked. Winona Orchards’ blueberries are all hand picked!
