Central Europe

CULTIVATIONS OF CONTROLLED ORIGIN

The blueberry has a slightly acid taste typical of mountain forests: as a matter of fact it grows in the woods all over Europe up to an altitude of 2,300 m. There is an area in northern Belarus where approximately 12,000 people are devoted to picking berries and herbs. An antique tradition deriving from the territory which is ideal for berries: more than 70% 


of the region is covered by woods, and the humid and swampy areas around the lakes alternate with small clearings exposed to the sun. The wild blueberry (Vaccinum angustifolium) can be easily recognized from the cultivated one: it is smaller, it has purple instead of light green flesh, it grows on small bushes in the underbrush instead of in bunches on strong shrubs, and it has an absolutely more intense taste.
