General Blueberry Information

Fresh Blueberries are nature's convenience food, they need no peeling, hulling, or pitting. These Blueberries are all grown in New Zealand and each Blueberry is hand picked, quality sorted and packaged with great care by growers and their families.

Bloom on Blueberries

Fresh Blueberries carry a powdery bloom similar to that found on grapes. This is the natural protective coating for the fruit and is a sign of a healthy berry.

Storage of Blueberries

Fresh Blueberries can easily be stored in a refrigerator for up to two weeks - that is if they have not been eaten by "fridge raiders" first!

Blueberries can easily be frozen for use during the winter. Simply place the dry fresh berries into a plastic bag, remove the air and fasten with a twist tie. Before use remember to wash the berries.
