Wild Blueberries

Ok first let me say I know a pic would be a huge help, I'm trying to get one soon.

We have some land and a neighbor once casually said that we had wild blueberries, so I looked and it looks like he may be correct. They look like the blueberry plants in my back yard BUT I didn't see any berries, blossoms and they are shorter only about 2-3' tall.
There has to be a thousand of these things mixed in amoung mostly oaks on a ridge.
It is located in southern Clarion county.
Any thoughts? I've never found wild blueberries before.

Re: Wild Blueberries

Never thought of that. I should say they are more like 1-2' tall not 3'.
How can I tell for sure? Wait for berries? Never ate Huckle berries, any good? Can these be transplanted?

Re: Wild Blueberries

Anyone ever tried to transplant them? Dig them up? When is best? Or try cuttings?

Re: Wild Blueberries

Sounds like low bush blueberries. Many people call them huckleberries, myself included. Should have berries by now at least in the NE there are green berries on the bushes now. Some still have flowers. There is also a real dark berry that we call stone berries because of the larger pit inside that grow like blueberries. Also good to eat. Waugh!
