Blueberries, 0.125 kg Pack

Category: blue, fresh fruit, Peru

  • Blueberries grow on low creeping shrubs or tall, erect bushes, depending upon variety. The small round berries can range in size from 5-16 millimeters in diameter. They first appear green but ripen into a deep shade of dusty blue. The soft, hazy white coating that develops on the skins' surface, which is known as the bloom, is a natural waterproofing that helps protect the berries from the sun and other natural elements.

  • Blueberries have a sweet and woodsy flavor with an acidity that varies depending on growing conditions. Long sunny days and warm temperatures develop a higher sugar content, while cooler temperatures and shorter days with limited sunlight increase acidity. After harvest, some plants lose their leaves while other varieties retain their foliage year-round, becoming a colorful mix of bronze, red and purple in the autumn. Commonly relegated for the usual pies and jams, Blueberries are just as appropriate in savory applications as in sweet dishes.

  • Proper storage for blueberries is around 0C, with relative humidity from 90 to 95%, providing a storage life of 10 to18 days.
