Cranberry

Handpicked with purpose

Where on earth is it from?

The cranberry (Vaccinium macrocarpon) is native to the U.S. Also known as the American cranberry or bog cranberry, this perennial plant grows in mild climate zones from the East Coast to the central part of the U.S. The cranberry also grows in southern Canada and the Appalachia. The cranberry is a popular trimming for the Thanksgiving holiday, adding a festive splash of color and cheer to the occasion.
