Bulk blueberries and heirloom tomatoes from Boston Organics

Noticed that BO is now offering add-on orders for blueberries (5lb box) and 2lbs of heirloom tomatoes. I've added both to my order for Friday, can't wait. I have 1lb of last year's blueberries in my freezer - I'll use them this week now that I'm sure they're coming again!

Blueberries are $25 for the 5lbs. Cost of the tomatoes is escaping me, but $9 for the 2lbs sounds familiar.

  1. How is Boston Organics in general? I was thinking about joining their delivery program since it is too late for me to get into a farm share for this year.

      In general I'm happy with it. I like the flexibility they give you. Their website has lots of great info.

        We split a large order amongst 4 people last year, I found the produce to be below the quality I could get at the market (Foodies, Trader Joes, Whole Foods) and especially below the farmer's markets like the one in Copley Sq. I will say the convenience is really nice. And I loved the idea of getting a surprise of fresh veggies and fruits every week as I'm not the type of person who goes to the store with any particular recipe in mind.

        We canceled but would consider giving them another shot. It sounds like most posters are enjoying them this year.

          i had exactly the same experience as you. also, in the winter i found that it wasn't really worthwhile as the boxes were extremely small and the quality was not that great.

            I'll agree with icculus, it's very convenient and nice to get a surprise each week, but there's always at least a couple items in each box that have clearly seen better days.

      2. I bought 10 lbs last year and just used the last of them to make two fabulous blueberry pies. Far and away the best I have ever made.

        I might need to go up to 15lbs this year...

        1. Thanks for the update. I also bought a few batches of them last year and will go over and add them to my next order.
