How to Select

  • Their name says it all; look for bright blue blueberries for the freshest fruit.
  • The white powder sometimes found on blueberries and grapes is called the bloom. The bloom is nature’s protection against bacteria and comes off when washed.

  • Discard wrinkly or moldy blueberries.

A Farmer’s Story

“My grandfather, Lajpat Rai Munger, was a huge influence on our family,” Asha says. “He taught us how to work and be a family, a team and a member of the community.” Asha’s grandfather built a hospital and university to serve rural farming communities in India, which still operate today.
