Buying Blueberries and Storage
Blueberries are a fresh produce that can be found locally almost everywhere in the country. It is considered to be in season during the summer. With proper cultivation, blueberries are in season most of the year in the grocery store. If you are a Do-It-Yourself’er, or gardener, you can grow your own blueberry bushes and enjoy the sweet fruit most of the summer.
If your are buying blueberries from the store, select blueberries that are firm and have a dark blue color to them. Some garden varieties will be slightly different colors but the commercial ones will certainly be dark blue. Blueberries will often have a white or shiny coating that will show your fingerprint if touched.
Store-bought blueberries can be kept in a refrigerator for a week. But wild blueberries will last much longer. When you are ready to eat them, simply rinse in cold water and let dry.
