Did You Know? Fabulous Cranberry Facts
This beautiful, tart little berry takes its place in the spotlight during November every year…
Did you know?
- It takes 4,400 cranberries to make one gallon of juice. (No wonder so many companies make cranberry juice cocktail instead!)
- The cranberry is only one of three native fruits cultivated in North America (the other two are the blueberry and the Concord grape).
- The cranberry gets its name from Dutch and German settlers, who called it the “crane berry” because when the vines bloom in late spring, the flowers look like the head and bill of a crane.
