Time for a botany lesson on Cranberry. In late spring through July, flowers begin to bloom in most regions. Interestingly, while on the plant, the flower is bent over appearing much like a Crane’s head. The berries ripen in the fall and turn bright red. Turn to page 16 for more information and a picture that your young ones can label.
