History of Wild Huckleberries
Huckleberries are found in many Pacific Northwest National Forests. They thrive in the Rocky Mountains and are most commonly found in Oregon, Washington, Idaho and Montana. Huckleberries are found in higher elevations and picked during the mid-late summer months in the wild.
Huckleberries are used in all types of dishes ranging from candies, syrups, jams, baked goods, raw and were frequently used for medicinal purposes by the Native Americans. With high vitamin C it protects the body against immune deficiencies, cardiovascular disease, prenatal health problems and eye disease. Huckleberries are also an excellent source of vitamin A and B which promotes a healthy metabolism.
Frequently compared to blueberries, huckleberries are darker in color with a signature purple juice with a more potent flavor. The taste can range from tart to sweet depending on time of year, size, and which huckleberry plant it came from.
Unable to grow easily in controlled conditions huckleberries are picked yearly in the wild, hence why huckleberries are considered a more expensive berry. Unable to be mass produced this juicy berry is picked by hand one berry at a time. Frequently found in hard to reach elevations coupled with being a favorite treat for bears, deer and other wild the berry is in high demand!
