Not to be confused with Blueberries, the scientific name for Bilberry is Vaccinium Myrtillus and is slightly different from the conventional blueberry. The easiest way to distinguish the bilberry is that it produces single or pairs of berries on the bush instead of clusters like the blueberry. Another way to distinguish them is that while blueberry fruit meat is light green, bilberry is red or purple.
Like Blueberries, Bilberries also have a high level of Anthocyanins and are more slightly more acidic.
