Garden Huckleberry

5710 - Garden Huckleberry. (Solanum melanocerasum) Native to the tropics of western Africa. Sprawling 3-4' branched plants produce hundreds of round ½-¾" shiny black berries in clusters. Best when picked after berries turn from glossy to dull black. Tasteless when raw and unsweetened, but makes delicious mock blueberry pies and preserves. Use about 1 pound of berries to ½ cup of sugar for best flavor. Good for freezing and canning. It is a common misunderstanding that Garden Huckleberries are poisonous. Garden Huckleberries are not poisonous! Even after countless studies have proven their safety, some garden writers still insist that gardeners are being terribly misled. That’s understandable, because tomatoes were formerly thought to be poisonous too! 75-80 days from transplant.

Safe Seed Pledge

Agriculture and seeds provide the basis upon which our lives depend. We must protect this foundation as a safe and genetically stable source for future generations. For the benefit of all farmers, gardeners and consumers who want an alternative. We pledge that we do not knowingly buy or sell genetically engineered seeds or plants. The mechanical transfer of genetic material outside of natural reproductive methods and between genera, families or kingdoms, poses great biological risks as well as economic, political and cultural threats. We feel that genetically engineered varieties have been insufficiently tested prior to public release. More research and testing is necessary to further assess the potential risks of genetically engineered seeds.
