General Information: Often confused with the blueberry due to its close resemblance, huckleberries are a wild blue-black berry. Although very similar in taste, the big difference is the seeds within the huckleberry that give it a crunchy texture when fresh and its thicker skin. Huckleberries range from red to blue to dark purple in color, depending on the region they live in. The flavor is a little more tart than blueberries, with an intense flavor.
