    What is a Huckleberry besides being Idaho's State fruit?

    Huckleberries are small and round-they look alot like blueberries. Huckleberries range in color from bright red, through dark purple, and into the blues. In taste the berries range from tart to sweet, with a flavor similar to that of a blueberry, especially in blue and purple colored berries, and some have noticeably larger seeds.

    Huckleberries are almost impossible to domesticate, so if you want them plan on a day trip to pick them in the wild. Mind the bears icon_wink.gif

    If your lucky enough to live in a region where Huckleberries grow, you might want to give one of these a try.

    I'd love to find some huckleberries near by. I tried to grow them last year, but my dad said that the berries looked like nightshade. I didn't know that nightshade had berries? But the berries definitely did NOT look like blueberries. I just couldn't eat them...the birds stayed away too. That must have been a sign.

    GARDEN huckleberries are in the nightshade family, along with tomatoes, potatoes and eggplants, Saeriu. The fruit is edible but not the stems, roots or leaves.

    True huckleberries are closely akin to blueberries and the terms are sometimes interchangeable, depending upon where you're located in the country.
