Speaking of blueberries

I found images on this site that speak by themselves.
Of course the ones that grow in the wild are on the left:
You see the difference in shape and size.
I can add the inside of the "natural" ones is dark purple instead of white, light green or light purple and the taste is a bit different too, much stronger actually. I guess the farmed species are either easier to farm at lower heights and/or more forgiving for the soil conditions or they produce much more fruits per plant and/or they are easier to preserve and deliver.
I am not sure of it but I was told the farmed version comes from an american tree that can grow about 1m tall. The native species here is a very low bush, maybe 30 or 40cm.
