Q:

Do blueberries have seeds?

A:

All berries have at least some seeds. There are many different types of blueberries, however, and the seeds may be more or less noticeable in certain kinds.

The seeds in most blueberries are small and not very noticeable, which usually makes them pleasant to eat. Blueberries are considered one of the healthiest berries for humans to consume because they are packed with antioxidants, fiber and many vital nutrients, including vitamin C and manganese. The antioxidants are especially important for neutralizing reactive oxygen species known as free radicals that are produced inside the body and can cause cell damage and premature aging.
