Cranberry Facts

The Cranberry is generally considered one of four species of the genus Vaccinium: Vaccinium oxycoccos, or Common Cranberry, Vaccinium microcarpum, or Small Cranberry, Vaccinium macrocarpon, or Large Cranberry, and Vaccinium erythrocarpum, or Southern Mountain Cranberry. There are several other common names in use for these species as well, such as Northern Cranberry, American Cranberry, Arando, and Dingleberry. Vaccinium macrocarpon and Vaccinium erythrocarpum are sometimes called Bearberry, but this is not to be confused with plants from the genus Arctostaphylos, more generally known as Bearberry.
