Arandanos

Can't Post | Private Reply
Hugo passing by noticed a neighbor harvesting the berries and he asked about them. She said they are Arandanos (cranberry), are medicinal and she makes an "agua" out of them. I tried a couple of the red ones and they had almost no taste. Cranberries are a vine that grows on the ground or a bog .... can't be a tree.

European and American cranberries grow as bushes with very woody stems, not vines. The woody parts of the US and European cranberry bushes look like small trees with branches, so they don't "grow on the ground":


Are you saying that the Mexican berries you describe grow on vines?

No ... this is very much a tree at 4+ meters and the fruit looks like an over-sized Blue Berry except for color and taste. Another Mexican generalization is all I can come up with .... but it exists and is real ??

I spent a few years in Alaska where there were both high bush and low bush cranberries. I believe the low bush cranberry is what we commonly think of as cranberries. They grow on low ground hugging stalks, never more than knee high. High bush cranberries grow on a small bush and are not really cranberries. I don't think that I ate more than one high bush berry, YUCK!
