The town of Hammonton is known as "The Blueberry Capital of the World." Elizabeth C. White gets the credit for "inventing" the blueberry. And finally, the anti-oxidant rich blueberry is the official fruit of New Jersey. So the next time you are cramming your purple-stained maw with blueberry pie, think fondly of New Jersey as your dessert slides down your gullet...for it is New Jersey that made such a feast possible.
