Pregnant women may want to choose organic blueberries to avoid pesticides, however. Pregnant women should always wash blueberries and other fruits thoroughly before eating them.Do blueberries increase blood sugar?
The sugar in blueberries will metabolize rapidly, delivering a slight glucose increase. Your body does not absorb dietary fiber, which means that the fiber content has no blood glucose impact.Do blueberries need to be planted in full sun?
Blueberry plants require full sun to produce a good crop. Blueberry bushes need to grow in moist, acidic soil with a pH between 4.0 and 5.0. Before planting blueberry bushes, the soil should be tested to determine its pH. Your county Ag Extension Agent can help you with soil testing also.
