Closely associated with the Lac St. Jean where it abounds, the word "blueberry" - or "beluet" or "cornflower" - has come to mean, a little ironically, its inhabitants, who are said to have the same characteristics as the berries of the plant that means: half sweet, half sour, slightly pasty, but with a fabulous creative potential ...

For the French, the word is one of the popular names of another plant, the cornflower blue, which can cause some confusion since the two plants have a therapeutic effect. Hence the importance of identifying plants by their Latin name, is not it? Vaccinium angustifolium, Vaccinium myrtilloides or so.

It is believed that the name comes from medieval Latin vaccinus, vaccines, which means "cow", but no explanation is given about the reasons for this association. Is it because in Europe, blueberries have been used in pastures for cows? In any case, certainly in our blueberry fields to us, were much more likely to encounter a brown bear, gender and hypoglycemic bad mood, an ox under placid. To monitor closely.
