Higbush Cranberry Viburnum opulus var. americanum (also known as viburnum trilobum)

This native plant is actually a viburnum not a true cranberry; however, it’s native status makes it a must in any natural orchard.

The tiny, red fruits are very high in vitamin C and can be eaten raw if you can handle sour. They make an excellent jelly and substitute well for large cranberries from the store. They taste best after a good frost.

The plant can grow 8 to 15 feet tall and 8 to 10 feet wide with a dense, rounded form. Beautiful screening hedge that provides an edible fruit. Plant more than one as the birds are very fond of these as well which is why we sell these in packs of 5.

Grows best in well-drained moist soil and once established can handle drought very well.

Beautiful flower show in the spring.

We highly recommend protecting your trees with a tree tube

Growing trees in the Northeast has proved challenging. One of our main struggles has been with deer and other tree nibbling predators.Not only were our orchard trees being nibbled and rubbed, but now the deer/rabbits/porcupines/voles and more were heading towards our nursery stock.I guess when you set out a buffet, the animals say ‘THANKS!’We decided to purchase a few hundred TREE PRO Miracle Tree Tubes and were quickly sold on the benefits.Trees that seemed to be stuck in their growth were now growing. We no longer had to constantly move electric fencing. Even trees in remote areas on the farm were thriving.We’ve decided to offer these to our customers for both seedling and tree protection. They ship with no additional cost with your tree order and definitely provide extra shipping cushion as well.You can add them to your order here: Tree Tubes
