Good for You

Blueberries are a superfood! Low in calories and loaded with antioxidents and important vitamins and micronutrients, blueberries are one of the most nutritious fruits!

Make Them Last

  • Select fruits that are not bruised or damaged
  • Wash before using
  • Store in refrigerator in a paper towel lined container with good air circulation
  • Select plump blueberries, indigo blue in color

Pick Some for Later

Fresh blueberries are easy to freeze and enjoy in pancakes, muffins and smoothies at any time of year. To quickly freeze blueberries, simply rinse and remove the stems, then place in a single layer on a cookie sheet in your freezer. Once frozen, seal berries in an airtight container or bag.
