According to the University of Georgia, blueberries are becoming increasingly popular due to their delicious and healthy fruit. Among other things, they are high in antioxidants, have anti-aging activity, promote healthy urinary tracts, improve vision and help fight heart disease. With a little effort, these “wonder berries” can be produced by home gardeners throughout Georgia.
