An erect shrub with small pink or white flowers, Blueberry (Vaccinium myrtillus) is native to North America and is now harvested throughout Europe. It bears large, smooth-skinned berries that turn to a deep purple as they mature. Apart from their size and preferred sweet taste, the berries are distinguishable from other species of the same botanical family because of their colorless juice. Blueberry fruits grow in clusters and are available from July to September. They are often used in jam, juice, compote and are also suitable for fruit salads and pastry fillings. The leaves have historical use for their health benefits and are often enjoyed as a refreshing tea.
