Product information "Blueberry Huckleberry Pacific Spear"

When I think of huckleberries, I am reminded of a special memory: a few years ago, we took the whole family on a trip to the American Northwest, and we drove from Seattle to Los Angeles, interrupted by a few nursery visits along the way ;-) And we came across the almost black huckleberries everywhere: at the beginning of our journey, we found them at the popular Farmer’s Market in Seattle; later, they were sold in stands at the side of the road. And our son could not resist. He always wanted to have a small serving of berries; the journey was long and since you already need strengthening. So far so good: he then nibbled the huckleberries diligently, except that the T-shirts afterwards had a whole other unusual colouring ...

About Huckleberries
Huckleberries are evergreen American wild blueberries, which are native, especially in the regions near the American Northwest Coast (Oregon, Washington, British Columbia). Botanically, they are known as Vaccinium ovatum. In contrast to the American blueberries, which need full sun in order to develop their full flavour, the huckleberries, as they are called in the northwest, are forest plants that also cope well with shade. Like the large-fruited blueberries, they need acidic soils; they grow up to 100 cm high, sometimes even a bit bigger, and typically have red-coloured young shoot tips. This characteristic has probably led to Vaccinium ovatum often being used rather as an ornamental tree than a fruiting shrub in American horticulture. However, if you drive throughout the American Northwest in late summer/autumn, you cannot miss the red and black berries; they are often offered at the roadside and at Farmer’s Markets they are popular because of their good flavour and because of their proven, high health values. And if you hold the berries in your hand, it will turn a pretty red colour, which clearly shows how much the anthocyanins are concentrated in these berries.
 

Tips

How do I protect huckleberries during the winter?   Huckleberries are hardy to about -15°C. If they are grown in pots, it is worthwhile to bring them to a balcony or terrace in a shaded location and possibly also protect them from direct sunlight using fleece; the sun is especially dangerous when the ground is frozen for a longer time and so no water can be supplied to the green leaves. Follow these steps: bring the plant into the shade, cover, water the plant immediately during warmer days so that the plant can absorb water.
