The Southern highbush blueberries thrive along the Mediterranean coast especially in Spain, but also across Sweden and some Eastern European countries. These highbush blueberries are a brilliant dusty indigo colour and are deliciously sweet.
FROM THE KITCHEN
Frozen or fresh blueberries are brilliant in purees, added to yoghurt, made into ice-lollies or made into a smoothie. A brilliant superfood for both you and your little one.
Blueberries are packed with nutrients, antioxidants and vitamins. They contain an excellent source of flavonoids, especially anthocyanins, which is the antioxidant that makes them that brilliant blue colour.
They are pale greenish at first, then reddish-purple, and finally dark purple when ripe. They are covered in a protective coating of powdery wax known as ‘bloom’.
