Superfruits: Blueberries

Blueberries, which aren't exactly considered to be exotic here in the US (they're said to be the second most popular berry in the country), were one of the first fruits to be referred to as superfruits, due in part to their diverse phytonutrients, anthocyanins, and polyphenols.

Blueberries grow as a perennial shrub (either in the 'wild' lowbush form, or the cultivated highbush form) across a wide range of habitats, and while the commercially available blueberry varieties found in most grocery stores may not always thrive in your location, there are plenty of cultivars that are suited to different climates. Three years of growth might be necessary before the bushes are mature enough to yield significant amounts of fruit.
