Meet the Wonder Berries!

We eat them raw, we have them in pies but rarely do we think of the health benefits of many of the berries that we eat. Well, they're so small! However, as demonstrates below, there is rather more to these small juicy fruit than meets the eye. Will you find your favourite berry in this long and beautifully illustrated list?

From the article:
Found throughout North America, blueberries grow abundantly in mountain regions and in forested areas. These flowering plants varies in size from 10 cm tall to 4 m tall. In commercial production, two species stand out namely: “lowbush blueberries” (smaller species) and the “highbush blueberries”(larger species).
