    Huckleberry - Wikipedia

    The name 'huckleberry' is a North American variation of the English dialectal name variously called 'hurtleberry' or 'whortleberry' (/ˈhwɜːrtəlbɛri/) for the bilberry.[1] In North America the name was applied to numerous plant variations all bearing small berries with colors that may be red, blue or black.[2] It is the common name for various Gaylussacia species, and some Vaccinium species, such as Vaccinium parvifolium, the red huckleberry, and is also applied to other Vaccinium species which may also be called blueberries depending upon local custom, as in New England and parts of Appalachia.[2]

    Whoa now, that's green :eek:

    Never seen those, no. I think I'd maybe try one for a sample but I'd be shy about it.

    No mine look far more like KG's post 48. I think she's got huckleberries there, not blueberries.

    What do you mean 'green'??? The leaves and a couple of those berries may be, but there was also dark red & dark blue/black

    It's blueberries, an image from the internet.
    I know what huckleberries look like here on the coast.

    The leaves on our huckleberries are waxy and stiff, and are red when they are new growth. The berries are tiny and very very dark. They start out green, then red, then purple, then dark and they're ready.

    Those leaves are small and hard, slightly lighter on the bottom, very pointy.

    Looks like it, from here.

    I've taken my walkabout a-berry gathering. It was a bit early for them but not a total loss. Here's mine with foliage and berries:

    Here's some less-than-mature berries not near ripe yet:

    Think I might have a red one like JANut's... there were very few, I chomped one down, it wasn't tart but wasn't that flavorful either...
