Bilberry is a low-growing shrub grown primarily in Europe. With over 200 species, relatives of the Vaccinium family can be found throughout Asia and North America as well. Similar to the North American blueberry, the bilberry is a small, nearly black berry grown with dark green surrounding foliage. Unlike blueberries, the bilberry is grown as a single or paired berry on the stem rather than the cluster that is blueberry. There is often confusion about bilberry and blueberry and many think they are the same berry just grown in different countries. While both are of the Vaccinium genus they are distinctly different species with different phytonutrient profiles as well.
