More info

Wild Blueberry (Vaccinium angustifolium). There are several species of blueberries worldwide of which one, possibly two, grow in Newfoundland. These are a low-growing subshrub, anywhere from 2-24" inches in length usually forming dense, extensive colonies. They are generally found in Newfoundland's forests, coastal headlands, high moors, peaty barrens, and exposed rocky outcrops. The picking season is anywhere from mid-August to late September. Very sweet in taste they are far superior to their cultivated cousins. Wild blueberries are an excellent source of vitamin C, niacin, manganese, carbohydrates, and dietary fibre. They also contain little sodium or fat. High content of anthocyanin and antioxidants attribute to the prevention of high blood pressure, urinary tract infections, cardiovascular disease, cataracts, slowing such aging processes as memory loss and the deterioration of motor skill, improving circulation, as well as the prevention of certain forms of cancer.
