These bushes grow around my house I grew up in, in Maple Valley, WA.  I have always called them huckleberries but I think we named them wrong.  I saw the real huckleberries in a book recently and they look very different.

These berries (known to us as huckleberries) are bright red when ripe, round and contain small seeds similar to blueberries.  Now that I think about it, they are very similar to blueberries, in shape and texture.  They are a little more sour than sweet.

Anyone know the real name?
