The colour of cultivated blueberries is different from that of wild blueberries. Cultivated blueberries are typically larger and plumper than wild blueberries, and they have a lighter blue color to be visually more appealing to the consumers. They are often grown in rows and receive more consistent irrigation and fertilization, which can result in larger, more uniform berries.
Wild blueberries, on the other hand, are smaller and more delicate and have a deeper blue colour. They grow naturally in the wild and are subject to varying soil conditions, weather patterns, and other environmental factors that can affect their size and colour. The deep blue colour of wild berries is due to the presence of anthocyanins, a type of antioxidant pigment that is more concentrated in wild blueberries than in cultivated blueberries. This may be due to the fact that wild blueberries have to compete with other plants and animals in their natural environment, and the anthocyanins help protect them from damage.
