You must be planning on using it for jelly or the like. The seeds in
Gaylussacia are large enough to be objectionable, especially compared
to blueberries. I grew some once and decided they weren't worth it for
anything that wasn't processed to remove the seeds. Salal was more
interesting as a wild berry and had small seeds like a blueberry.

I want to purchase some Black Huckleberry (Gaylussacia baccata) that
recommended for zones 3 or 4. Would someone please steer me toward
who sells them. Botannical references indicate that they occur, in the
wild, as far Northwest as Wisconsin. Thanks.
