The fruit is a small sweet dark blue to black berry. This plant grows best in wooded or open areas with well-drained acidic soils. In some areas it produces natural blueberry barrens, where it is practically the only species covering large areas.
This plant is fire-tolerant and its numbers often increase in an area following a forest fire. Traditionally, these fruit growers burn their fields every few years to get rid of shrubs and fertilize the soil. In Acadian French, a fruit field is known as a "brûlis" (from brûlé, burnt) because of that technique, which is still in use.
