This decorative annual will grow to a bushy, 3 foot plant in one season, producing clusters of plump fruit that look like large, dark blueberries. Garden Huckleberry make delicious pies, jellies, and jams, but use about 1/3 more sugar than your normal blueberry recipe.

Planting guide: Sow indoors 6 to 8 weeks before they can be set out-of-doors. When the plants have 4 leaves transplant 4 to 5 inches apart. Set outdoors 3 feet apart after danger of frost. The fruit should not be used until thoroughly ripe. Boil until tender before adding sugar, as boiling in sugar will cause it to become tough. There is sometimes a bitter taste which disappears after the fruit has been frosted. If prepared before frost, parboil in water containing a small pinch of baking soda.

These items are useful when starting seeds indoors for transplanting:

Jiffy-7 Peat Pellets
Peat Pots, 2 1/4'' round
Peat Pots, 3'' round
3'' square pots
4 1/2'' round pots

For protecting your transplants against late, unexpected frosts choose between Hotkaps plant protectors and Wall O' Water plant protectors.

Everything you need to get your plants off to a great start!
