U-pick thornless blackberry season 2018, Savannah

U-pick blackberry picking Savannah

U-pick thornless blackberry season 2018 is now open through June @ Coastal Georgia Botanical Gardens, Savannah.

U-pick blackberry fields are open:
Wednesdays, Thursdays & Fridays 9AM-1PM
Saturdays 10AM-1PM
Tuesdays 10AM-1PM
Closed Sundays & Mondays

The fields will be closed June 2-June 4 and reopen at 10AM June 5.

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 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 (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. Remember, blackberries do not further ripen once picked, so only focus on berries that fall/tug off the stem easily. If they’re still “glued on”, they’re sour and definitely not ready to pick.

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.
