Would you believe Canada is the world’s largest producer and exporter of wild blueberries? These lowbush berries are mostly grown commercially throughout Québec and the Atlantic provinces, but Oxford, Nova Scotia takes the title of “Wild Blueberry Capital of Canada”. The province was one of the world’s first commercial blueberry growing regions, and produces enough blueberries to make 26 million pies each year. Oxford is also home to Oxford Frozen Foods Ltd., the world’s largest exporter of frozen wild blueberries.
On the other side of the country, British Columbia is one of the largest highbush blueberry-growing regions in the world.
