Vaccinium berberidifolium

Here is one of just a few native Hawaiian endemic fruits that can be enjoyed with some regularity (if you're on the Halemau`u Trail in Haleakala Crater). Genus Vaccinium includes blueberries and is a close relative of cranberries. Berries can be found all year but are best seen from June through December.
