Summary and Origin Edit
The Lingonberry (Vaccinium vitis-idaea), also known as lingonberry, partridgeberry, or cowberry, is a short evergreen shrub in the heath family that bears edible fruit, native to boreal forest and Arctic tundra throughout the Northern Hemisphere from Eurasia to North America. Lingonberries are picked in the wild and used to accompany a variety of dishes in Northern Baltoscandia and Russia. Commercial cultivation is undertaken in the U.S. Pacific Northwest and in many other regions of the world.
Lingonberries look similar to cranberries.
Lingonberry flowers can be white, red-white blended or pink-white blended.
