Vaccinium macrocarpon 'Early Black'

The most widely grown variety of cranberry on account of its reliability. The fruits are dark red, almost black and have a good tangy flavour.  More resistant to frost and disease than other varieties.


Pollination: Self-fertile.


Plant size: 9cm pot.


Available for delivery: all year.

 

Apart from being fruitful, cranberry bushes have year round ornamental appeal with pretty pink flowers in the summer, dark red berries in the autumn and rich red evergreen foliage in the autumn and winter. Their trailing habit makes them perfect for rockeries, pots, window boxes and hanging baskets. Lingonberry bushes have a more upright habit but will only reach a maximum height of 15-20cm (6-8in) and can be spaced 30cm (12in) apart. Both these plants are acid loving and therefore make wonderful companions for pot grown blueberries (cranberries will spread along the top of the compost and hang down the sides). Cranberry and Lingonberry bushes are container grown and available for despatch throughout the year.
