Cornwall’s soil is naturally acidic, ideal for growing blueberries, which is one reason for growing them here in Menherion, says Cornish Blueberries. They are also delicious and good for you, very different in flavour from those you buy in the supermarkets. Although not officially registered as organic, no pesticides are used on the plants and they are treated with rain water and wood chippings to maintain a healthy, natural growth. Cornish Blueberries are located alongside Stithians Reservoir, and have about 190 plants producing over 300 – 400Kg of fruit in a season from 6 different varieties of blueberries. The season usually goes from early July to mid September. Blueberries are available for sale during the fruiting season at Menherion House in 200g punnets (cash only) – find us opposite the Golden Lion pub (TR16 6NW). Larger quantities for personal or commercial use can be ordered – call or email to place an order in advance of your arrival or for delivery.
