First, a little bit about the New Jersey Blueberry…
According to Wikipedia, The New Jersey Blueberry, otherwise known as Vaccinium caesariense, is a native perennial plant in the Eastern United States, and is especially prominent in the New Jersey area. Hence, its common name New Jersey Blueberry. It is found in the coastal states from Florida to New Hampshire, almost always in wetlands. Some of its native habitats include pine barrens, mires, upland meadows and woods, ravines, and mountain summits. Furthermore, New Jersey has developed environmental and agricultural programs to protect and develop the New Jersey Blueberry, such as the Blueberry Plant Certification Program and the Phillip E. Marucci Center for Blueberry & Cranberry Research & Extension. Center for Blueberry and Cranberry Research? Only in New Jersey baby! LOL.
