Fresh Blueberries to the Middle East

Five years ago, I visited Dubai in the United Arab Emirates, and could not find a single blueberry in produce or products.   Things have changed.   Fresh blueberries are in all  of the larger hypermarkets throughout the region including Lu Lu, Spinneys, Carefour and Geant.  
Check out some photos from grocery stores in Dubai.  (Sorry for the quality as I was in a rush and wanted to take before getting kicked out of the store0.

                                          Typical berry display!  Huge!
                                         Check out the frozen polybags.   All of the blue bags are blueberries!
