The lingonberry is a small red berry, native to North America. It is tart and can be used to make candies, jellies, jams, sauces, and syrups. Available fresh and frozen.

Lingonberries bloom twice, once in early Spring and once in early Summer. With adequate frost protection, both blooms will produce crops of sparkling red, pea sized fruit very high in vitamin C and other fruity acids. The berries taste tart when eaten fresh, are excellent for sauces, jams, jellies and wine. In Europe, Lingonberries have a long history of medicinal uses, from lowering cholesterol levels to curing gastric distress and rheumatism.
