Greatest Tasting Wild Huckleberries on the Planet come from the Rocky Mountains
Idaho and Montana grow some of the best huckleberries in the world (In my humble opinion, of course)! Folks travel from miles around to pick and eat our huckleberries, here in the Rocky Mountain areas. Huckleberries, according to 'Asta Bowen, author of The Huckleberry Book, are "the most sought-after wild fruit in the mountain west, the tangy berry that makes its domestic cousin, the blueberry seem like bland stuff."
Our gift baskets are made from the best huckleberry products made in the Rocky Mountain region. Wild huckleberries are picked at their peak of ripeness, shipped to the commercial kitchens, and made into the most wonderful tasting jams, jellies, syrups, sauces, chocolates, and more ...
Huckleberries are the Idaho State Fruit!
Although many people think of Montana when eating huckleberries, you will find that huckleberries are the Idaho State Fruit! The huckleberry was designated the official state fruit of Idaho in 2000. Several huckleberry species of huckleberry are native to Idaho -- all belonging to genus Vaccinium.
The panhandle area as well as the bordering mountain ranges between Montana and Idaho is where most of the huckleberries are picked! The growing climate in the upper elevations (about 3000 feet or more).
Mid to late summer is the best picking time for huckleberries. Many huckleberry festivals are held during this time to commemorate this event. And many pickers are combing the hillsides, avoiding bears, to gather up their personal bountiful of berries!!
