Blueberries   << BACK

Named one of the 14 super foods…Florida European’s blueberries pack a powerful nutritional punch. So, it is true that good things come in small packages. Used by Native Americans for medicinal purposes, blueberries are a tiny fruit that combines a wide variety of nutrients. Blueberries don't have a huge amount of any single nutrient, but they have the synergy of multiple nutrients. Blueberries also have a very thick skin, which is where nature packs most of its nutrients. They contain health-enhancing nutrients that protect against heart disease and cancer, and also improve our sense of balance, our memory, and other thinking skills.

Storage & Handling:

Color and brightness of fruit will vary depending on varieties. Look for berries that are blue to dark blue in color. Most varieties of fresh blueberries have silver-white frost, which is referred to as “bloom.” Lack of bloom on some varieties may be an indication of excessive handling and lack of freshness. Size doesn’t denote quality or maturity level.

If blueberries are exposed to higher than recommended temperatures, shelf life will be reduced significantly and skin will become rough-textured.
