Cranberries are a noticeably acidic fruit which can vary from bright to dark red. The cranberry loves a peat, bog like environment and when this is replicated with the condition that the soil has a low ph level (or planted in a large pot or tub with ericatiuos compost) they should grow successfully. The cranberry fruit are ready from late September in warmer British climates to mid October in colder, more northern areas. Cranberries are also often noted for their many health benefits.
