Trivia

Did you know that the ancient Egyptians drank lemonade too? The North American indigenous population called blueberries ‘star fruits’. A single bush of blueberry can produce nearly 6,000 blueberries in a year. The shine on the berries is all because of the presence of a naturally occurring compound. The compound protects the fruit. There are two types of blueberries: highbush and lowbush. Lowbush blueberries are small and are used to make juices and jams while highbush berries make their way to grocery stores. Blueberries are also used to make blueberry wines.
