    We grew these “garden huckleberries” on the south side of our garage one year, and they did really well. But you do have to boil them, right? I will also have to look them up in my ‘Cornucopia II’ (edible plants of the world) encyclopedia. Thanks for posting this!

      Aloha! You do NOT need to cook the berries, they can safely be enjoyed raw. It is, however, important to be sure that the berries are fully ripe (dark purple/black) with no green.
