Why So Blue?

There’s almost nothing better to brighten a day than the delicious tart of DOLE® fresh Blueberries! Blueberries have a celebrated history in America, in fact, Native Americans called the delectable fruit ‘star berries’ due to the 5-point star formed by the blossom end. Even American adventurers Lewis and Clark enjoyed Blueberries during their famed travels!
Incredibly, over 90% of the world’s commercial blueberries are produced in the United States and Canada alone! It should be noted that the state that produces the most blueberries is Michigan! Capitalizing on the popularity of blueberries are not just your taste buds, but Robert Frost, whose poem about the berries conjures up mouth-watering imagery. The Jelly Belly Company even developed a Blueberry flavor just so that Red, White, and Blue Jelly Beans might be enjoyed during President Ronald Reagan’s inauguration!
If you’re looking for something to put a smile on your face, look no further than delicious DOLE® Blueberries! You may want to keep your eye them though, as Robert Frost says, Blueberries are “like two kinds of jewels, a vision for thieves.”
