Full Answer

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.
