This August is the most prolific huckleberry month we have ever seen in Coastal Northern California. (The Mendocino Coast) Many huckleberry branches have clusters with as many 80 to 100 ripe berries.
We have two color varieties here. One has a very dark (almost black) and shiny skin & the other has a dusty blue skin. Both types are bearing fruit like mad!
I prune off the berry laden branches and collect them in bags, then pluck the berries on the porch or in front of the TV in the evenings. I have been picking & cleaning at least 2 to 5 lbs each day in about 3 hours.
The local restaurants & bakeries are stocking up on frozen berries for the year.
