Bilberry is a type of berry that is very similar to blueberries. It is, however, a little darker than blueberries and smaller in size too. It has its origins based in Europe but it is now found in some Asian countries as well. They are also available in North America. Despite their availability in these continents, they are still often referred to as “European Blueberries” in some of these places. Other common names for this fruit include whortleberry and huckleberry.

The name bilberry is derived from the Danish word bollebar, which roughly translated to “dark berry”.

Certain sources also claim that Bilberries are
