It’s National Blueberry Pie Day! Americans have been filling their pies with delicious, fresh-picked berries since the colonial era. Today, blueberry pie is one of the most popular pie flavors in the United States. Blueberry season begins in May and ends in the late summer, so blueberry pie is a perennial favorite at Fourth of July celebrations.
Did you know that Maine produces more blueberries than any other state? In fact, 25% of all low bush blueberries grown in North America come from Maine. That makes this New England state the largest producer of blueberries in the world!
Head to your favorite local bakery or make your own tasty blueberry pie today to celebrate National Blueberry Pie Day!
