Cranberries belong to an evergreen dwarf shrub family. The low, flowering shrubs can measure approximately 7 feet. Evergreen shrubs have small dark green leaves leaves and deep pink flowers. The fruit is a berry, which turns yellow and eventually deep red when ripe. Cranberries are tart and acidic in flavor, and are traditionally processed into juices and jams, or dried and sweetened for use as a snack food. Cranberries boast high levels of antioxidants and vitamin C, as well as immune-boosting properties.
Mostly growing in acidic bogs, evergreen shrubs grow throughout cooler regions of North America. Harvests occur in autumn. Cranberry sauce is a popular condiment on traditional American and Canadian Thanksgiving menus, replicating the early cranberry sauces consumed by early settlers in North America. Native Americans are thought to have introduced cranberries to settlers, who utilized them as a food, a dye and a medicine.
