ℹ The Red Candy Lingonberry is a charming and edible compact ground cover shrub that has glossy green evergreen leaves. This variety is early flowering and heavy producing large crimson red edible berries that hold on through to the winter. Self-pollinating. Often described as the Cranberry’s sweeter and juicier cousin, with a taste that is similar to raspberries and cranberries with an irresistible sour zing! In other countries Lingonberries greatly outweigh the use of cranberries during traditional holiday meals. They’re extremely popular to use in jams, muffins and scones because people can’t get enough of their unique berry flavour. By snacking on them fresh or adding them to cereal or yogurt you’ll be adding an irresistible sweet and sour berry flavour to your favourite recipes, as well as tons of all that good stuff that is packed into each berry. Excellent for juicing! You will never run out of Lingonberries because they have 2 harvests, one in midsummer and one in early fall. Simply step outside and pick the vibrant red berries from your attractive ground cover plant!
