Why Do Some Blueberries "Run"?

Reply Sun 26 Jun, 2005 06:11 am
I love blueberries. I eat them raw, and frozen. I cook them and bake with them. I pick them right off the bushes, and buy them in the supermarket.

There is one thing that I find very peculiar about them though. There are some blueberries, when you rinse them, where the color "runs" like a cheap navy shirt in the wash. Others do not.

Anybody know why?

I'd guess that some of the bleeding berries have been slightly bruised--or are leaning toward the rotten side of ripeness.

Glad to see you posting. Hold your dominion.

Bump- I still have not figured the mystery of the blueberry, and its been over three years since I first wrote that thread. Anybody have an answer?

Probably cheap blueberries I should think. Those wild ones on the moors don't run.

Do they paint blueberries the way they paint apples?

I thought that I would do some detective work myself. A few moments before, my hands were covered in blueberry juice, and I figured that I needed to get to the bottom of this.

So I went to "Google" and typed, "Why do blueberries run?" Do you know what I got ????
