Raw, Maine, Wild Blueberry Blossom Honey - 1lb Glass Jar...Out of Stock

From about the beginning of May thru June, some of our hives are trucked to Maine to pollinate wild blueberries which are one of the few fruit-bearing plants native to North America and Maine is the largest producer of blueberries on the continent.

The biggest difference between lowbush (wild) blueberries and highbush (cultivated) blueberries is the time they need to be harvested. Highbush blueberries are harvested once a year, while lowbush blueberries are harvested once every other year.

Another difference is the size of the plant. Highbush blueberries can grow to more than 6 feet in height. Lowbush blueberries reach a height of 60cm or less.

Low bush blueberry blossoms have small white or pink bell-shaped flowers. During the growing season, lowbush blueberries produce the flower bud by the end of the year. The next season, these flower buds blossom and produce blueberries. Lowbush blueberries are harvested about 2 months after the flowers blossom in the spring.

The berries from a lowbush blueberry plant are smaller in size than that of a highbush.

Wild blueberries are also richer in antioxidants. One-cup serving of wild blueberries has more total antioxidant capacity than a serving of cranberries, strawberries, plums, raspberries and cultivated blueberries.

Highbush blueberries are not part of the commercial blueberry industry in Maine.
