The fruit is a false berry 5-16 mm in diameter, with a flared "crown" at the end; they are a pale greenish at first, then reddish-purple and finally indigo on ripening. They have a sweet taste when mature, with variable acidity.
Blueberries are sold fresh or processed as individually quick-frozen (IQF) fruit, puree, juice or dried - which can be used in a variety of consumer goods, such as jellies, jams, pies, muffins, snack foods and cereals.
To freeze freshly picked blueberries, place in a single layer on a cookie sheet in the freezer. It is best to rinse before using, but not before freezing.
