History of Blueberries Plants Who doesn't love blueberries? They are sweet, juicy, and taste incredible in muffins. They are also rich in essential nutrients and antioxidants, which makes these berries one of the healthiest foods you can find. There are many different types of blueberries plants. They are often called different names and grow all over the world. However, the fruits that are considered 'blueberries' in the world of commercial deals, are native to the North America. Here they grow freely and you can still find quite a few bushes producing tasty berries in the wild. These blueberries have been an exclusively American treasure for a very long time. They only traveled to Europe in the 1930s, but today they are grown in South America, New Zealand, and Australia as well. The US remains the main producer of blueberries in the world, and Washington is the leader among the states with over 96 million tons of berries produced there every year. Michigan and Georgia are close in their supply rates, but every state grows at least some variety of local blueberries plants, be they cultivated or 'wild'. Wild blueberries are smaller, but they are also sold commercially. These berries are harvested from managed, but natural growth areas of the shrubs. The people of today can thank Frederic Coville and Elizabeth White for the blueberries plants that produce large fruits. In 1910, they started a cultivation program that encouraged everyone to grow their own variety of blueberries, and we get to enjoy its results.
