  •   wildfoodlove The crowd? @kdn909 21h
  •   wildfoodlove @em_vegan_vintage identified this as a blueberry but it does indeed look more like a bilberry ️ Thoughts @em_vegan_vintage? @kdn909 21h
  •   em_vegan_vintage I had to search the internet, I had no idea there were any other name for this berry! I thougt it was the same type, except that we say american blueberries because they are larger then the ones in Scandinavia. If you translate blueberry to swedish it's excactly the same, a blue berry. I can't translate bil, there is no such word in swedish. I'm still startled by this information I had never heard of this before, but bilberry it is! 20h
  •   wildfoodlove Yeah I did looked it up too! Yeah that makes sense. One of the differences I found with bilberries and American blueberries are that bilberries are much more blue on the outside and inside, whereas American blueberries are blue on the outside but more of a gray blue color on the inside. What do the ones you pick on your area look like on the inside? @em_vegan_vintage 16h
  •   em_vegan_vintage Yes they have a deep blue colour all through! And they are also not as firm as am blueberries, they are very soft, like you can't split one without crushing it. 7h
  •   em_vegan_vintage This is so interesting I'm still a little bit chocked haha 7h
