A new alternative berry like a blueberry?

Des Moines, IA(Zone 5a)

I've heard within the past year that there is a new Blueberry (not an actual blueberry bush) but a new type of blue fruit that has more antioxident's for our bodies ..... does anyone know the name or the origin of this new "blue colored" berry? What type of zone can it be grown in? I'm curious! If it can be grown in Iowa I would consider a small farm operation to try to grow it and maket it at the Local farmers market.

Thanks, Jill
