Buying and Storing Fresh Blueberries: The whitish “bloom” that gives fresh, plump blueberries a powdery appearance is a good thing! It’s a natural protective coating and should not be washed off until you’re ready to eat them. Refrigerate them right away in a covered container that’s not made of metal.
