Fresh blueberries will last about 7 days when kept refrigerated and covered. The berries only need light rinsing before consumption. You can also freeze blueberries, but those are only suitable as part of a recipe. Once defrosted, they will have lost part of their shape and colour. Make sure that your blueberries are dry when you freeze them.

Quality and ripeness

A ripe blueberry is juicy, round and has a purple-blue colour.

Use

This blue gold is not just healthy, but very tasty in a broad range of dishes. Put the berries in cakes, yoghurt, muffins or home-made cereal bars. The combinations are endless with both other fruits and vegetables, and in delicious smoothies or milkshakes. Of course they are also very tasty on their own.

Types and varieties

The wild blueberry has been completely replaced by the cultivated blueberry because of it's longer shelf-life and more appealing looks. Better varieties ensured healthier spread throughout the year. As a result, production is very well aligned with demand.
