Definitions

from The Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia

  • n. The deerberry, Vaccinium stamineum, a neat low bush of the eastern United States, with scarcely edible fruit, but with pretty racemed flowers having white recurved corolla and projecting yellow stamens.
  • n. The squaw-huckleberry is now known to include several species, and by recent authorities is classed as a genus, Polycodium. P. melanocarpum, of mountain woods in the Southern States, bears copiously a juicy and palatable purple fruit, which gives it the name of wild gooseberry, borne also to some extent by other species. P. candicans, of the Alleghanies, has a large, light-colored glaucous fruit which is barely edible. P. stamineum, the common squaw-huckleberry, has a smaller green inedible fruit.
