The berries, blueberries

Blueberry fruits are round and slightly flattened in shape. Blueberries have small, mostly elliptic, short stalked leaves.

Blueberries are 'soft fruit', a name which underlies the impact that fruit texture plays in their marketability. Blueberries aren't actually blue, but deep purple, which is the color of anthocyanin, a pigment that is especially rich in blueberries. Plump, juicy berries with a deep purple color highlighted by a silvery sheen called ñbloomî.

Fresh blueberries are delightful and have a slightly sweet taste that is mixed with a little bit of acid from the berry. Some berries are tarter than others, while sweeter blueberries do exist.

Ripeness and maturity are the key factors that influence the taste of a fruit. Ripening processes play a key role in flavor development and can affect the chemical and sensory characteristics (acidity, sweetness) of fruits.

They are small but juicy and will release juice when bitten down. Wild blueberries are smaller than cultivated ones and often have a more floral taste.
