Solanum melanocerasum


Huckleberry - garden - Collected from Piedras Verdes, a Mayo community in Sonora, Mexico. Commonly called the garden huckleberry, the leaves are cooked (do not eat raw!) and the shiny black berries are edible and delicious. Delicious for pies, jellies, and jams but do require more sweeteners than other berries. Berries are 1/2 to 3/4 inch in diameter and produce abundantly over a long season. Do not eat unripe green berries. Originated the tropics of western Africa
