Blueberries are perennial flowering plants related to cranberries and bilberries.
The fruit is a relatively small type of berry with a flared crown at the end.
They're light green when immature, then reddish-purple, and finally indigo.
When ripe, they have a sweet taste with varying levels of acidity.
The most common types sold are mainly native to North America.
Commercially, smaller species are referred to as "lowbush" or "wild" blueberries, and larger species are called "highbush".
Blueberry bushes typically bear fruit in the middle of the growing season, but are affected by local conditions.
The leaves can be either deciduous or evergreen.
The flowers are bell-shaped, white, pale pink or red, sometimes tinged greenish.
