A small branch shrub found mainly in moors, humus-rich soil and open woods from lowlands to mountains, Bilbery (Vaccinium myrtillus) bears small blue-black, many-seeded berries. Also commonly know as whortleberry, Bilberry has been a source of fresh jam for hundreds of years. Extensively written about in 16th century herbals, this plant is native to northern E urope and Asia ' with its nearest American counterpart being the huckle-berry. During World War II, Royal Air Force pilots swore that eating Bilberry jam prior to night missions significantly improved their visual acuity in the darkness.
