Wild huckleberries ripen from mid- to late summer. The berries primarily
grow in the western United States with more than 12 species of
huckleberries found in Oregon and Washington alone. You'll find the berries
along trails and the roadside in many of the region's national forests.

*Timing*

September, depending on the location. The berries ripen earlier at lower
elevations. Scouting a few patches several weeks ahead of the supposed

*Varieties*

· Large, sweet purple huckleberries come from the thin-leaved huckleberry
plant. Thin-leaved huckleberries ripen from mid-August to mid-September.
Red huckleberries mature earlier in the season from July into August.

*Factors*

· The tasty little berries grow at elevations ranging up to 11,000 feet in
height
