Maine's Famous Blue Fruit

Maine produces 98 percent of this country’s wild blueberries—the most in the world. Most of the blueberry crops grow in Washington County, which borders New Brunswick, Canada. There are many great places to pick blueberriesin Maine.

Generations of children have loved Robert McCloskey's blueberry-picking adventure story, Blueberries for Sal. This classic is a tale of the irrepressible curiosity—and appetite—of youth. In the book, Sal and her mother set off in search of blueberries for the winter at the same time as a mother bear and her cub. A quiet comedy of errors ensues when the young ones wander off and trail the wrong mothers.
