"It was amazing to taste wild blueberries in their natural habitat when I visited Canada. They've been growing here for over 10,000 years. Compared to cultivated blueberries wild blueberries really deliver on taste, with intense sweet and sour flavours and less water. They're definitely worth all the effort."
How it’s grown
Our wild blueberries have been growing naturally in eastern Canada for over 10,000 years - in fact they're one of North America's oldest native berries. Each blueberry bush spreads naturally and slowly with careful management. It can sometimes take years before it's ready for harvesting.
Wild blueberries have twice the antioxidant power per serving than ordinary blueberries. This is to help them flourish in the thin glacial soils and northern climate of eastern Canada, where temperatures can drop to -15C. Their exceptional characteristics have literally been 10,000 years in the making.
