Story by Brian Rossiter - Fruit-Powered

Sweet, juicy and boldly colored plump little fruits, blueberries are popular among berries and fruits in general. Berries, generally, score a 93 out of 100 in Dr. T.C. Fry’s “A General Guide to Food Selection.”

Blueberries are in peak season from June through August. A cup of blueberries weighs 148 grams.

Blueberries come from the family of Ericaceae, of the genus Vaccinium. Blueberries are classified as either high-bush or low-bush blueberries. High-bush blueberries grow on shrubs as high as 10 to 12 feet tall. Low-bush blueberries grow on plants 1 to 2 feet in height. A third kind, rabbiteye blueberries, grow on medium-size shrubs.

Blueberries are a rich source of Vitamin K and a range of antioxidants such as lutein. They contain 84 percent water by weight.

High-bush blueberries are grown in British Columbia, Georgia, Maryland, Oregon, New Jersey, North Carolina and Washington. Michigan is the leader in production of high-bush blueberries. Maine produces a quarter of all low-bush blueberries. High-bush blueberries are also grown in such European countries as Estonia, Germany, Poland and Romania. Blueberries are also grown in Turkey, Australia, New Zealand and South America.
