Description
 

An unusual crop for gardeners to try, garden huckleberries are loaded with small, jet black shiny, ½" berries. Not for eating raw, but best cooked with other fruits such as apples, lemons and grapes to make jellies, preserves and pies. The flavor will improve if you allow the fruits to stay on the plant until after the first frost. Fruits hold for an extended period on the plant. One plant can produce enough berries for a single pie. Adding sugar is key, adjust as needed, but we recommend 2 pounds of berries to 1 cup sugar.

Garden Huckleberry July 21, 2017
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Florence, AL United States  
I live in N. Alabama zone 7.  Seeds are very small but easily started and easy to set out and grow in the garden.  I did nothing to them and even had the weeds take over and the bugs ate most of the leaves but they produced a large amount of berries with good flavor if a little sugar is added.  

I tried making jelly off the cuff with no recipe and it turned out syrup instead but I've eaten every bite of it.  I'm saving seed for the years to come and will put up some more next year.  I'll also try letting them go wild if they will.
