Wild Blueberries of North America

wild high bush blueberries (huckleberries)
Harvesting wild berries has become a lost art in much of North America. Many regions have naturally growing berries in vast numbers. Among the most sought after of these foods are wild blueberries.

Also known as huckleberries, these delicious treats are found in woodlands and swamps of North America. There are several species, with berry pickers generally focusing on high bush or low bush varieties.

Property owners often nuture wild blueberry plants, either for consumption, to attract wildlife, or simply for their beauty.

Wild blueberries can be eaten fresh or added to cobblers, muffins, breads or other dishes.
