U-pick blackberry picking Savannah

U-pick thornless blackberry season is now open on a limited basis @ Coastal Georgia Botanical Gardens, Savannah.

Picking hours will be Monday-Thursday and Saturday from 9 am to 1 pm (Note there’s no berry picking on Fridays or Sundays).

Coastal Georgia Botanical Gardens at the Historic Bamboo Farm offers fresh berry fruits for picking from the fields when in season. The harvest season is heavily weather dependent.

Call 912-921-5460 to learn the status of the field prior to arriving, as poor weather or large crowds may pick the field clean well before the 1PM scheduled closing. The best time to pick is first thing in the morning at 9 am (as it is cooler, too).

No pets allowed in the fruit picking fields during your harvest. Children must be supervised to prevent plant trampling. You are responsible to pay for all fruits (ripe or unripe) picked during a visit.

More details here. 

COST: $3 per pound. Containers provided.  Cash and credit card (debit cards as well if they have a major credit card symbol on them) are accepted.

The gardens have picnic tables scattered around the grounds if you want to make a picnic out of your trip.

CGBG does NOT offer a picking service.

Stay updated about u-pick fields status by liking Coastal Georgia Botanical Gardens on Facebook here.
