Blueberries grow in acidic soils that are rich in organic material. Wild blueberries are generally found in woodland areas in most parts of North America. Commercially grown blueberries are found in the agricultural regions of both North and South America.

Blueberries grow best in locations that feature temperate climates. The best growing regions for blueberries in North America are Oregon, Washington, British Columbia, Alaska, the Midwest, Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont.

Because they grow well in certain parts of the Southern Hemisphere, blueberries are always available fresh in the supermarket. Blueberries can be eaten plain, stirred into oatmeal, baked into muffins or pies or combined with other fruit and yogurt in a blender to make a smoothie.
