Difference between Bilberry and Blueberry
Bilberries - which are native to Europe - are different from North American blueberries, although the species are closely related and belong to the same genus, Vaccinium. Bilberry fruits have a smooth, circular outline at the end opposite the stalk, whereas blueberries retain persistent sepals there, leaving a rough, star-shaped pattern of five flaps. Bilberries grow singly or in pairs rather than in clusters, as blueberries do, and blueberries have more evergreen leaves. Bilberries are dark in color, and usually appear near black with a slight shade of purple. Blueberries and bilberries both contain high levels of anthocyanins, which are great for eye protection. Bilberries and blueberries contain diverse anthocyanins, o delphinidin and cyanidin glycosides. While blueberry fruit pulp is light green in color, Bilberry is red or purple. The high anthocyanin content may cause staining of the fingers, lips, and tongue of consumers.
