Highbush Cranberry---September


The berries are beginning to ripen. Still, the best is yet to come!




To see how it has changed, go to June, July and August.

Interesting, being from Massachusetts, I thought cranberries were only grown in bogs. Do they taste the same?

Been browsing your blog..the pics from Portugal were beautiful.

Just stopping by from SITS to say hi; hope you'll do the same.

I didn't know there were cranberry bushes! I always thought they were only grown in bogs, too. This is so cool!

OMG I never even knew about a highbush cranberry. I thought that they were only grown in a watery marsh. How do they taste?

In my excitement to tell you about your award I forgot to comment that I live on Cranberry Way. There's not a single Highbush Cranberry to be seen though. sad.

What are your favorite ways to collect them - jams? I had not idea they could grow in this manner. Pretty bush

Kristen and Just Breathe...and all who asked....The highbush cranberry is a different species than the bog cranberry we think of at Thanksgiving. It's related to the honeysuckle. Supposedly it is edible and has a similar taste (tart & bitter) but I've never harvested them. I just let the birds and little animals have the berries.
