    Harvest Corner:

    Cranberries grow on

    bushes that get

    flooded to harvest.

    When flooded, the

    cranberries float to

    the top of the

    cranberry bog for

    easy collecting.

    Nutrition Bites:

    The red in cranberries

    has lycopene which

    helps keep our hearts

    healthy.

    Cranberries have fiber

    to keep you feeling

    full.

    Did you know?

    Cranberries grow really

    well on the Oregon

    coast.

    Cranberries are

    harvested in late fall.

    Most cranberries are

    too tart to eat raw.
