Are Blueberries The New Strawberries?

When I was a kid spring and summer were marked by Strawberries.

First in early May you would get a few punnets coming from France and Belgium, then a few weeks later, Kent kicked in and the taste just got better and better as the crop worked its way up to Scottish Strawberries in June.

This still happens, but the magic is lost as we have Straws all year round, even though the ones you get in winter are not much better than drinking tap water for taste.

Ive also noticed just how popular Blueberries are becoming, ive eaten so many of them this spring/summer that I will soon be a smurf, so could the blues take over from the Reds at Wimbledon?

Proof, if proof is needed.
