Description

Lowbush Blueberry produces dark blueberries that are edible but not particularly tasty when raw

The growth habits of these plants are pretty different. While this plant grows primarily on upright canes, this berry spreads vegetatively, sending out long arching stems.

The wild lowbush blueberry (Vaccinium angustifolium) is native to northeastern North America and commonly found throughout central Canada. The continental United States, growing south as the Great Smoky Mountains in Tennessee as far west as the Great Lakes region. A small shrub 0.5 to 1.5 meters (1.6 to 4.9 ft) tall produces dark blueberries that are edible but not particularly tasty when raw, with a sharp taste that mellows upon cooking.

These plants are found in meadows, pasture clearings, near bogs, and abandoned farm sites. These blueberry plants are not sprayed with chemicals. They produce slightly smaller fruit than their cultivated cousins but just as intense.

This plant might be small, but it packs a lot of antioxidants. These tiny berries are thin-skinned and floral, often described as similar to black currants. Commonly consumed for their health benefits, wild lowbush blueberries boast high levels of the antioxidant anthocyanin and vitamin C.

During the growing season, these plants are usually harvested in the wild. These berries are moist and bright in flavor and make a fantastic spread for toast or pancakes. The jam is perfect for making muffins. Every batch of berries that we process is carefully sorted by hand, so only the best berries make it into our jams, jellies, and preserves. Our blueberry products are made from fruit harvested in Vermont.

These berries are found along the eastern seaboard of Canada and the United States, the northern United States west to the Great Lakes region, and the province of Ontario. Vaccinium angustifolium is a trailing shrub with low-growing, widely spaced stems that root in the soil. The leaves are alternate with long petioles and lack prickles. The lower leaf surface has glandular hairs but not palmate scales like highbush berries. These plants  produces abundant fruit in clusters; each fruit is approximately 3–4 mm wide and contains 10–15 miniscule seeds (rarely more than 20).

These plants are edible and taste similar to cultivated highbush varieties. They can be eaten raw or cooked, but the wild variety is small and has a slight tendency to be more tart than many cultivated varieties.

They have a  fruiting season in July and August. The fruit is berry-like with purple skin and a sweet-tasting, raisin-like interior.
