The new study by Edward Kennelly and colleagues has called this variety of blueberries as super fruits and said they have the potential to "be even more highly promising edible fruits."

Blueberries have been linked to cancer prevention and even improvement in cognition levels.

The study was published online in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry.
