Countryside Gardens fall shipment of Blueberries arrived. Planted in the ground or a container, they have become highly popularized by their medicinal properties. However, this native American fruit has been in use for thousands of years as part of the native Indian diet. The blueberry is not only sweet and delicious, but is rich in Vitamin C, manganese, and dietary fiber. Being in the same fruit family as cranberry, the blueberry plant is equally high in antioxidants. The high grocery store price of blueberries is a great reason to grow your own bushes. Blueberry plants are easy to grow and have a long productive life. Just a few blueberry bushes would provide adequate berries for a small family. Varieties include Bluecrop, Bluejay, Sunshine Blue and Pink Lemonade.
