Cranberry Plants (Vaccinium macroparon)
Cranberries or Vaccinium macroparon are unique fruits. They are one of three native fruits to North America. Cranberries grow on low lying vines like strawberry plants. These beds are commonly known as bogs or beds layered with sand, peat, gravel and clay. Their trailing stems should be buried and will root over time. If your garden grows rhododendrons or other acid loving plants, then cranberries should succeed. Cranberries are full of flavour and chock-a-block with all those essential ingredients for a long and healthy life. They can be eaten fresh from the plant, used in scones, and cakes, juices, jams or dried.
