Blueberries are the newest addition to our berry family. They’re high in antioxidants, improve memory function and can reduce the effects of aging.
Blueberries are the newest berry to join the Driscoll’s family. We started growing them in the early 1990s. They’re high in antioxidants, are known to improve memory function and can reduce the effects of aging. Try topping your cereal with fresh blueberries for a heart-healthy breakfast.
Every Driscoll’s blueberry variety has its own unique flavor profile and receives a unique name, like our first variety, the Driscoll’s Rockinoee™. Driscoll’s has now patented several blueberry varieties, which means that only our independent farmers can grow them. Blueberry growing areas include Oregon, Washington, Florida, Central California, New Jersey, North Carolina, Chile, Mexico and Argentina.
Driscoll’s Blueberries are plump, packed with rich flavor and full of antioxidants. They’re also non-fat, high in fiber and contain many essential nutrients like vitamin C, folate, and iron.

When choosing blueberries, look for berries that are dry, plump, round and free of dents and bruises. Blueberries should have a soft, hazy white coating called “bloom.” Bloom is a completely natural part of the berries’ defense mechanism and helps protect them from the harsh rays of the sun. Avoid blueberries that are shriveled or lack bloom.
Blueberries taste best when kept chilled. Under ideal conditions, blueberries should keep for five to seven days in your refrigerator. For best results, Driscoll’s recommends that you keep your blueberries dry in storage and eat them as soon after purchase as possible. Berries need to be rinsed just before use.
If you plan to freeze your blueberries for jams and jellies, don’t wash them before freezing, which can make their skins tough. Instead, wash thawed blueberries only just prior to use.
