Blueberries are sweet, nutritious and wildly popular.
Often labelled a “superfood,” they are low in calories and have the highest antioxidant capacity of all commonly consumed fruits and vegetables.
Blueberries like all fruit are best in season and locally grown. In the lower North Island the season starts in December and ends in April.
Why not make a day of it and bring the family out to pick blueberries. It’s fun for the entire family – young and young at heart. Breath the fresh air, enjoy the sun on your shoulders and get back to nature. Then enjoy the fruits of your labour by baking some muffins or adding blueberries to a salad or smoothie.
