Lingonberry Koralle

Lingonberry Koralle

Introduced from Sweden, lingonberries or cowberries (Vaccinium vitis-idaea) are becoming popular for their high antioxidant and vitamin content as well as for their delicious flavour. Lingonberry Koralle is widely grown commercially; a low, creeping, evergreen shrub, with little bell-shaped, deep pink flowers in late spring and again in summer, it usually bears two crops a year. The wine-red berries are jewel-like, with a sharp, refreshing taste, reminiscent of cranberries, but superior; they make excellent sauces and preserves. Related to cranberries and blueberries, like them lingonberries must be grown in acid soil (pH4.5-5.5) or in ericaceous compost in containers. Good as ground-cover in forest gardens.
