Cape Cod Moonberries and Crowberries

The Cape’s lowly cranberry, bright, gayly red, pleasantly tart to the taste, with a delightful tang, is a berry of fascinating interest to those who make a study of it and its varieties, names, and sources.

It is not a stranger to the British Isles, Europe, and other foreign lands, though there it is generally unlike our familiar cranberry. And it is not always red in color. The Pilgrims found the cranberry growing in swampy places, and learned almost by accident that it loves, and thrives best of all in, sandy bogs.

Few would know what you meant if you spoke to them of whortleberries, moss melons, moonberries, crowberries, and sour berries. Yet these names have all been applied to the cranberry.
