Vaccinium deliciosum is a rhizomatous shrub.

The fruit is a waxy blue or reddish berry with a powdery coating which may be over a centimeter (>0.4 inches) wide. It is said to be particularly tasty. Studies show that the intense flavor of the fruits of this plant come from at least 31 different aromatic flavor compounds.

V. deliciosum, like other plants that live alpine communities, have adapted to survive in growing seasons as short as three or four months.

The berries are an important food source subalpine zones, and especially in alpine communities which do not have very many edible plants.

Then cover them with plastic and place in a fridge for 60-90 days. Be sure they stay moist. After the cold-moist stratification period they are then brought back to room temperature (20-22 °C, 68-72 °F) for them to germinate. Germination is generally 30-90 days after the warming period, though some can take longer. Do not discard the planting tray, as patience is needed, and they are well worth the wait.
