Vaccinium corymbosum  by rhoing

Vaccinium corymbosum

Blueberries from my bowl of fruit this morning. There are, of course, the occasional stems (“peduncles”?) attached, but I don’t recall ever getting leaves as well. So this is the post for today, leading me down a bit of a rabbit hole on “blueberries” more scientifically and botanical terminology. Photographed in a foldio1 photo box by ORANGEMONKIE.

» The genus Vaccinium has more than 900 species…
» The common grocery store item is probably Vaccinium corymbosum
» Genus also contains Vaccinium macrocarpon, better known as cranberry
» Blueberries and cranberries are “berries” … but raspberries are not berries
» Species pages for Vaccinium corymbosum: [ PhytoImages at ] [ Missouri Botanical Garden ]
