COFFS HARBOUR Blueberries

If the berry world was served by a superhero, it would most likely be the blueberry. Consumption of blueberries has been linked to health benefits including a reduced risk of cancer, increased insulin response, a reversal in age-related memory loss, and lowering blood pressure. Impressive for such a small little fruit. 

Plus, they even have their own superhero suit!  The silvery sheen (or “bloom”) found on the skin of blueberries is a naturally occurring compound that helps protect the fruit. This is why you should only wash them right before you’re going to eat them. This specific variety have been grown in Coffs Harbour, a region that is responsible for 80% of all of the berry’s production Australia wide. In other words, they’re blueberry pros.
