Re: WILD HUCKELBERRYS/BLUE BERRIES
Always heard that true huckleberries grow on an annual plant in the nightshade family. Blueberries grow on woody shrubs that continue to grow year after year.
As a kid, we called wild blueberries huckleberries and farmed blueberries, well, blueberries.
The outward appearance of the blue berry is nearly identical to the service berry. In fact they taste almost the same, but the service berry is a relative of the crab apple and has barely noticeable little "apple like" cores and seeds inside. Service berries get ripe around the first week of June.
