I have a thing for berries. And I love having my Mixed Berry smoothie when I have some frozen packets of mixed berries in the freezer. I even add a scoop of Vanilla Rapid loss. Gives it that sweet taste I love and I don’t need to add sugar!
I can’t wait to have my own berry garden in my forever home. At the moment, my household is growing strawberries and black mulberries and I would love to grow others. But that would mean that I need to buy more pots and soil. And of course, more types of berries.
But have you ever wondered exactly how many types of berries are out there?
I have, and today I’m going to name them. Some you know very well and some has been classified as a super food.
Then there are the ones we don’t know. And some of these are even toxic. Which I’ve changed the colour of the writing to red.
So here is a list of 52 berries that I have found.
- Acai Berry
- Amla/ Amalika/ Indian Gooseberry
- Barbados cherry
- Black Mulberry
- Buffalo berry
- Goji berry
- Holly berry
- Indian Plum
- Ivy berry
- Juniper berry
- Lingonberry (also known as Cowberry)
- Logan Berry
- Mistletoe berry
- Oregon Grape
- Privet berry
- Red Mulberry
- White Mulberry
- Yew berry
Did I miss any berries? Which are your favourites? How many do you actually know? Do you grow your own?
I’d love to know =)
