U-Pick Strawberry Season coming soon to Coastal Georgia Botanical Gardens, Savannah

You-Pick Strawberries @ Coastal Georgia Botanical Gardens,Savannah

Coastal Georgia Botanical Gardens at the Historic Bamboo Farm continues to offer fresh berry fruits for picking from the fields when in season. The harvest season is heavily weather dependent. None of the 2016 berry-picking fields have opened yet.

Look at the chart below. 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 12 noon 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: $2.50 per pound. Containers provided. Bring cash.

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

Fruit Season Time Pricing Active Season
Strawberries late March – May $2.50/lb. 2016 season not yet started
Blackberries mid-May – late June $3.00/lb. 2016 season not yet started
Blueberries April – late June $3.00/lb. 2016 season not yet started
