There are two different kinds of huckleberries in America, belonging to either the Gaylussacia genus, or the Vaccinium genus. There are many varieties of huckleberry plants within each genus.
Huckleberries grow best in very acidic soil. Plant them in a sunny spot with direct sun. Huckleberry bushes can grow up to six feet high, so they can be used as a nice hedge.
Huckleberries are used for several desserts. You can make huckleberry pies, jams, muffins, and use them as tasty toppings for ice cream!
A fun fact is that huckleberries are one of the Grizzly bear's favorite foods, and they sometimes travel great distances to get to huckleberry bushes. Another fact is that huckleberries are commonly mistaken as blueberries. One difference is that huckleberries have pits.
