Bilberries, small blue-purple coloured berries, have a mild, slightly sweet flavour (unlike cowberries, of the same family, which are more bitter) and are among the berries with lightest sugar and caloric content and among the fruits with the highest antioxidant activity. They are known for their high fiber content and their diuretic, antiseptic, antidiarrheic, antihemorrhagic and antihemeralopic properties (hemeralopia is an excessive difficulty of seeing when it is getting darker).
Bilberry (especially Vaccinium myrtillus) is also known in English by other names including blaeberry, whortleberry, (ground) hurts, whinberry, winberry, windberry, wimberry, myrtle blueberry and fraughan. Bilberries are distinct from blueberries but closely related to them, the bilberry is native to Europe including the British Isles, while the blueberry is native to North America.
Latin name: Vaccinium myrtillus
