Mountain Tobacco Facts

Mountain Tobacco is another name sometimes used for Common Bearberry, one of three species of Bearberry in the genus Arctostaphylos, likely because bearberry leaves were one of the main ingredients in kinnikinnick, a tobacco mixture smoked by some Native American tribes. The binomial name for Common Bearberry is Arctostaphylos uva ursi. Also known as Arberry, Bear Grape, Mealberry, Mountain Box, Mountain Cranberry, Sandberry, and Upland Cranberry.
