The wonderful blueberry -- of which the animal kingdom (including humans) are very fond -- is completely at home in the acidic soils of Nova Scotia. The common Nova Scotian variety is, Vaccinium angustifolium. This low growing bush likes dry places, especially the rocky barrens; they do not do well in open sunny places. I show the blossoms, but it is the famed blue berry that is sweet to the tooth of the native animal populations. One of my favourite deserts is blueberry pie.
