Organic Food Delivery Of Fresh Florida Blueberries

Blueberries

Blueberries have a diverse range of micronutrients, with moderate levels of the essential dietary mineral manganesevitamin Cvitamin K and dietary fiber(table). One serving provides a relatively low glycemic load score of 4 out of 100 per day.

Some health benefits attributable to blueberries include reduced brain damage in experimental stroke and may cause increased production of vascular nitric oxide that influences blood pressure regulation. Additional research showed that blueberry consumption altered glycosaminoglycans that are vascular cell components affecting control of blood pressure, lowered cholesterol and total blood lipid levels, possibly affecting symptoms of heart disease.

Supplementation of diets with wild blueberry juice may affect memory and learning in older adults, while possibly reducing blood sugar and symptoms of depression.

Growing Blueberries In Florida

Before settling on specific varieties, you will need to choose the types of blueberries that are best suited to your region: highbush, lowbush, half-high, or rabbiteye. Regardless if you live in Jacksonville or Miami, there is a blueberry type that will thrive in your backyard.

Blueberries demand soil quite different from that enjoyed by most other garden plants. For blueberries to thrive, the soil must be well aerated, moist, very high in humus, and—most important of all—very acidic. These conditions are not, however, difficult to create. Start by doing a soil test, then acidifying it, if necessary to a pH of between 4 and 5.5 by mixing in sulfur, a natural mineral, the season before you plant your blueberries.

Blueberries do not like rich soil, but fertilizer may be needed if annual growth is less than a foot, or four inches for lowbush varieties. Organic fertilizers are ideal for blueberries because they are less likely to burn the plants’ tender roots and because they supply nitrogen in a form blueberries use best.

Rabbiteye blueberries give southern gardeners another option besides southern high-bush. These are two of the best most suited for the Florida growing climate. Typically smaller than high-bush berries, they ripen later in the season. Newer varieties, such as ‘Bonita’ and ‘Climax,’ have delectable flavor and cross-pollinate each other well. Rabbiteye bushes can grow ten or more feet tall, and the plants are less finicky about their soil than other kinds of blueberries.
