Is this a huckleberry or something nasty?

A:

Hello, and thanks for your question. That is indeed what we call an evergreen huckleberry, and those berries are edible. This is a good article and description provided by the Slater Museum of Natural History at the University of Puget Sound: Evergreen Huckleberry. The trick with finding these often has more to do with beating the birds and bears to them!
