Blueberry

Description

Blueberries are round, smooth skinned, small individual fruits with sweet, juicy flesh.  Blueberries are purple-black to blue-black in color with a silver frost to the skin. They are best in season when they are firm with a slightly waxy appearance. They are sold loose and off the vine in local farmer's markets and in small plastic containers in commercial stores. They are notable for their high antioxidant content and an important part of a healthy diet.
