I have heard of a dangleberry, somewhat similar to your huckleberries i think. Check it out in the urban dictionary. Is that dubious enough for you?

Dangleberry is a name used in North America for several plants in the family Ericaceae, in two closely related genera: Vaccinium and Gaylussacia.
What is there to worry about???

Ugni berries are one of my favourites, and they are still on the bush at this time of year.

Josta berries are another favourite, a cross between a blackcurrant and a gooseberry, makes the best jam.

Chokeberries (Aronia) do very well here and I have read that they are very good for jams/ jellys etc. but so far I have left them for the birds.

Mahonia - Oregon grape, wonderful spring fruit, again I leave these for bird food as we always seem to have more than enough jam when they come in.

Tayberries. yum.

I thought of wishing you all a Berry Christmas but then I was afraid another pun might upset Tagwex, so I decided I'd better not.
Oops!
