    Big E,
    So, did you try eating any? Any good?

    We (my wife and I) picked enough wild huckleberries this fall for four pies! I thought with all the dry and hot weather we'd had, the berries wouldn't be too abundant. But our old "secret" berry hole proved me wrong. No C&R on huckleberries! Really good eating..

    Yes...picked some but there really wasn't enough to do anything with. They tasted so-so but didn't taste anything like raspberries....

    look just like wild rasberries to me too. what did they taste like? I know that I'd rather eat a lemon than one of the rasberrys off of our plants if they aren't ripe.

    First nobody can tell what kind of fish they are catching and now it goes to berries. What gives????????????????????????//

    I used to find where they were growing wild and then go eat them when they were ripe. Not wild ones the domestic ones.mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm good.

    Not sure
    I'm waiting for UW botany professor and WFF member Richard Olmstead to weigh in with an expert identification.

    When you pick them do they leave the core behind?
