These small "ground hugging"plants produce cranberry-like fruit. If you are after the health benefits of cranberries then lingonberries will provide equal or more health benefits. Plants are self pollinating and should start to produce fruit the year after planting. Our RED PEARL lingonberry plants are easy to grow and they resist cold winters down to -35 C (Zone 2-3). Also the small branches will reroot to form new plants for expanding your production.
