Since they're the only blueberry farm in the area growing rabbiteyes, Blue Pearl's season differs from most. It begins at the end of May and lasts well into August, while Southern highbush berries ripen at the end of April and wrap up by July. Last year, each bush yielded about a gallon of berries. This year, the crop has more than doubled, which means it's a good year for Cheri and Robert—and an even better year for their customers at the Charleston and Mt. Pleasant farmers markets. The berries are ideal for snacking by the fistful or for baking into, say, a buttery blueberry upside-down cake.
