Originating in Africa, Huckleberries (Solanum melanocerasum) are terrific in pies and other baked goods. Strong plants are grown like peppers and do NOT have to be staked. Produces large yields of fruit all summer long. (75 days)
Start seed indoors 4 to 8 weeks prior to the last frost of spring. Seeds are covered only slightly to allow light which sometimes assists germination. Do not allow the soil to dry out — keep moist!
