Our Blueberries

The blueberry is the fruit of a plant from the Ericaceae family, which belongs to the Vaccinium genus. The berries grow together in small clusters on thick and bushy shrubs. The plant flowers in spring and grows beautiful white-pinkish pendulous buds between its stalks. It is an extremely adaptable plant: it resists the cold very well and tolerates high temperatures up to about 30 ° C.

Sant’Orsola cultivates many different varieties of the “Giant American Blueberry” (not to be confused with the wild one, which differs in size) including Brigitta, Liberty and Duke.

In order to meet our quality standards, Sant’Orsola blueberries must appear whole, clean, have no damage or marks on their surface and must not have a stalk. The fruits, with a solid blue color, are covered by their bloom, a whitish natural wax that is deposited on the skin and has a protective function. The sweet taste of the fruit is well balanced with pleasant sour notes.

The blueberry is native to the northern areas of Europe and North America. Indeed, it was the Native American tribes who first devoted themselves to its cultivation, whose techniques were passed on to the colonists who then brought them to Europe.

Our blueberries are cultivated in accordance with the principles of “Integrated Production”, which follow the current National Guidelines.
