BLUEBERRY or BILBERRY
(Vaccinium myrtillus L.)
There is a difference between the Swedish wild low bush blueberries and the blueberries we normally buy in the supermarket. The American blueberry is oversized, pale-fleshed and white coloured on the inside.
On the other hand, the Swedish blueberries are small all-the-way-through blueberries which will colour your mouth and teeth dark blue if you have the pleasure of eating them fresh. The colouring pigments of the Swedish blueberries truly fascinate modern scientists.
