Wild blueberry season in Mid Coast Maine

italianices | Aug 4, 2011 07:08 AM

Can any of the local Mainers tell me if wild blueberry season has arrived in coastal Maine?

I would like to time my next trip to the area so that it coincides with wild blueberry season, but even after searching this site and others, I'm still not sure exactly when wild blueberry season takes place. Based on what I've read, it seems like it might vary from year to year based on weather conditions and the specific location in the state. I'm assuming Downeast Maine gets the berries later in August than the southern coast near York or Portland, but please correct me if I'm mistaken.

Whenever I visit Maine, I usually spend most of my time along the Mid Coast, so I'm most interested in finding out from the locals of that area when the wild blueberries are expected. But I'd also like to hear from the locals residing along other parts of the coast, from York up to the Downeast region.
