It's time to indulge into California Blueberries

I am so excited to hear that it is the blueberry season again! It means that we can beat the heat of summer by having some sweet succulent blueberries at the comfort of home, or enjoying a glass of blueberry smoothie by the beach.

When it comes to blueberries, there is nowhere better than California to source for the juiciest and freshest blueberries! Do you know that California is one of the top six blueberry-producing states in North America? In the most recent season, California farmers produced blueberries in 28 counties on nearly 9,000 acres.

Do you know that the California Blueberry Commission was founded on March 1, 2010 to promote the blueberry industry in California? It is necessary to assure the public of a continuous supply of this important commodity and the maintenance of needed levels of income for those engaged in the blueberry industry of this state. The Commission is authorized to carry out programs of pest management, advertising, promotion, food safety, maturity standards, education, marketing, and research relating to blueberries, and more. Therefore, California Blueberries are sure to meet the gold standards in terms of fruit quality and taste!
