These shiny, scarlet berries are grown in huge, sandy bogs on low, trailing vines. They’re also called bounceberries, because ripe cranberries bounce. They’re sometimes called craneberries after the shape of the shrub’s pale pink blossoms, which resemble the heads of the cranes seen wading through the cranberry bogs. Cranberries grow wild in northern Europe and in the northern climates of North America.
