Cranberry Seeds (Vaccinium Macrocarpon)

bag of 10 seeds

Evergreen shrub growing in peat bogs of North America
Native Americans knew cranberry long before the arrival of the first settlers.

They added pemmican (a mixture of dried meats and fat ensuring their survival in winter)

Subsequently, New England sailors ate during their long sea voyages.

They had found that those who consumed them were not victims of scurvy.

The richness of vitamin C was unknown, but the effectiveness of the remedy was known.

This plant whose height does not exceed 30 cm bears evergreen leaves 1 to 2 cm long oblong, whole, dark green and becoming bronze in winter.

In summer, 5-10 mm, pink, divided into four narrow lobes, are borne by fine peduncles.

They hang in the axils of the leaves, alone or in bouquets of two to ten.

The big red acidulous berries 1 to 2 cm in diameter develop on the vertical shoots from the creeping stems.

In the kitchen, cranberries will be perfect with cheese or in salads.
A good way is to use them wherever you put the raisins.
Juice, jam, sauce and dried fruits are also very interesting
