I haven't. I stick with the blackberries. I am not sure where to find huckleberries!

Blackberry cobbler is my favorite. I didn't know blueberries grew in Kentucky.

When I was a young kid we lived in Claiborne County Tn near the KY line, my parents bought a house in Bell County KY just across the line. This was in the 1950's and the woods were full of blueberry bushes (folks then called them huckleberries ) My mom canned them and made blueberry pies and sold them. Too be honest I haven't saw a blueberry bush in KY or TN in years. I'm sure if one got out in the woods in some areas in KY you just might still find some though.

When I was a kid in the 1950's the older folks called them huckleberries, but now days they are called blueberries. I'm talking about the berries that grow on small bushes maybe 3 feet tall or smaller, my wife is from KY and had no idea what a huckleberry was...lol.. but her mom knew what they were.

Is Bell County where the Bell Witch lived or is that Robertson County?

They are native to KY but finding them in the wild anymore may be a task, here are some tips for growing your own. Middle of the page is about blueberries and huckleberries.
