The wild blueberry has been known since the Middle Ages. It is found throughout the entire northern hemisphere and its preferred location is primarily shady forests, heaths and moors. The branched dwarf shrub, which grows from 10 to 60cm high, yields its ripe dark blue soft berries from July to September. These fruits leave traces on the skin, tongue and teeth when picking and eating them. The much larger cultivated blueberry, which is descended from the American blueberry and has a light-coloured pulp, is usually grown commercially or on plantations. Blueberries can be eaten fresh or used in cakes, desserts, compotes and jams. They are also popular steeped in red wine, to make blueberry wine.
The pure natural blueberry juice that gives Grether’s Pastilles Blueberry their fruity flavour and intense taste is obtained from carefully hand-picked blueberries.
