US consumption of blueberries has more than doubled in just 16 years.

The Blueberry Council says Americans now buy more than 853-million pounds of blueberries -- a five percent increase in year-over-year production.

Industry officials say greater availability as well as being considered a "super-food" have contributed to the increase.
