Blueberries are berries that form part of the group known as fruits of the forest.

Blueberries stand out from the rest in its category for its antioxidant, antibiotic and anti-inflammatory properties. It is a low calorie food, which suggests that we burn up more energy when consuming it and this is why it is highly recommended for diets. In addition, it reduces blood sugar level which is beneficial for diabetics.

Blueberries are considered to have the highest antioxidant properties.

Agromolinillo currently grows a variety called Star, characterised by its good size and flavour which ranges from mid sweet to sour. It contains a great deal of nutrients, has a great flavour and is low in calories. We are equally trying out other varieties.

We have an area of 300 hectares which has approximately four hundred thousand (400.000) plants, of which one hundred and ninety two thousand (192.000) plants or sixty (60) hectares are organic.

Planting and harvesting calendar

The harvesting season is variable depending on the blueberry variety planted, but to summarise, the harvest would begin in March and finish in June, with peak supply in the months of April and May.
