The cranberries are a group of evergreenshrubs in the genus Vaccinium Oxycoccus, or in some treatments, in the distinct genus Oxycoccus. They are found in acidic bogs throughout the cooler parts of the Northern Hemisphere. The name cranberry derives from their being a favourite food of cranes. They are low, creeping shrubs to 10cm tall (often less), with slender, wiry stems, not thickly woody, and small evergreen leaves. The flowers are dark pink, with very distinct reflexed petals, leaving the style and stamens fully exposed and pointing forward. The fruit is a small pink berry. FREE Recipes
