A huckleberry is a common name for small wild berries that sometimes look like blueberries. The word huckleberry appears to be an American word derived originally from “hurtle-berry,” a corruption of the Saxon heart-berg or “the hart’s berry.”
Huckleberries range from deep red to purple in color. There’s a ton of range of taste, habitat and appearance because there are over 30 species in North America that people generally refer to as huckleberries. Out of the 7 species that occur in Montana, only two are commonly found in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem! To complicate things even further, many of these species classifications are in dispute. The Globe Huckleberry (Vaccinium globulare) and Mountain Huckleberry (Vaccinium membranaceum) are considered the same species by the USDA.
