Some Info About Huckleberries

This tasty fruit is a purple/red berry that grows in the mountains. They can be found in British Columbia, Central California, Montana, Washington, and Idaho. They actually are the state berry for Idaho. During summer is when they are ready to be harvested. You can achieve this by picking them by hand or cutting off a branch. You can deal with the heat and possibly see a bear or you can load the branches up into a truck. Dealing with bears can be dangerous. If you decide to sit there and pick, you need to know how to act when you come across a bear.

These berries are not cheap to buy and can be hard to find someone to buy them from. They can run from $45–60 USD per gallon, depending on where you buy. I notice that local residents in Idaho will sell them for $45.

There are different types of foods you can buy that contain huckleberries in it. Syrup, jelly, jam, and candy are the common ones. You can normally find these at your local grocery market, but they are not cheap. I have seen a 16-ounce jar of jam go for $20.

Huckleberries are also very delicious and sweet. They can have a sour taste to them as well. The berries are very addicting, so do not eat that much. You can get a stomach ache.

Picking the berries can be a fun activity with your kids. They can be hard to find, so ask the local residents to find the best picking spots. Make sure you do wear sunscreen if you decide to pick, and bring bear mace. The berries do grow around the months of July, August, and September.
