Blueberries are one of the few fruits that is native to North America. For many years the Native American would gather and eat the berries that were usually found in forests and bog areas. The berry was even a part of the mythology of many Northeast Native American Tribes.
Blueberries originated in North America, more specifically the area now known as Canada. Blueberries were widely used by native peoples as part of their diet: fresh, dried and powdered. When early colonists came to North America, they incorporated blueberries into their regular diets as they were comparable to berries found in their homelands. In their abundance, blueberries were shipped to Civil War troops in cans.
Blueberries ( Vaccinium) actually are one of the only species of fruit, which originated in North America. Native Americans gathered these delicious fruits for immediate consumption and storage, they were also used for medicinal purposes to relieve coughs and are thought to be “good for the blood.”
