Raspberry Picking at the Strawberry Basket
OUR RASPBERRIES - For the Ripest, Juiciest, Sweetest Tasting Raspberries - it's worth the trip to Monticello, MN and "The Strawberry Basket". We incorporate and adhere to environmentally sound practices and sustainable cultural methods of production. This in turn leads to a healthy and high quality product for the consumer. We grow two varieties of summer bearing raspberries. The raspberry canes are loaded with fruit this year. Come on out for some fresh fruit. Don't forget about our blueberry season.
OUR RASPBERRY SEASON - The raspberry season usually lasts about 4 to 6 weeks. Dates and Times often change due to weather and crowd size.
Picking time schedules for raspberries and blueberries are so tricky that we try to post on our site at least 2 days in advance as to when the next picking date will be. Crop ripening will determine next date. We always start at 7 am and recommend getting here early. Raspberries have been getting picked out early.
