Where to Enjoy Blueberries in Orlando this Spring

It's time to go blueberry picking in Orlando. Go hyperlocal by visiting u-pick farms in Central Florida to pick your own strawberries, citrus, blueberries, flowers, and other produce. These local farmers welcome guests for an authentic Florida farm experience. Finish off your satisfying day date by making homemade jam, pie, or sangria with the fruits of your labor.

Tip: Take note of what season each fruit ripens, and always call ahead for hours of operation and availability. Wear sun protection and closed-toed shoes for tromping around in the Florida scrub and bring a bottle of water.

Wondering what's in season when? Here's an overview:

  • Blueberries: April – May
  • Strawberries: December – March
  • Citrus: Winter months
  • Sunflowers: Spring and Fall
