Re: Lingonberries


That's great, Kathy. No, no Scandinavian genes here that I know of [I get frostbite just thinking about winter]. But I love the preserves-- and this seems to be a place where they'll flourish, so I figured I'd try. These are of a new variety--"Koralle"--that is touted to produce two crops a year.

Do you have a bit of the Swede in you, Jim? My g'ma (from Mora, Sweden)
always had lingonberries on her table. Kathy

Lingonberries arrived from Forest Farm today. Quick service--I ordered
them last Friday. Interplanted them in the new raised bed  with the
gooseberries. Ray at FF said he thought it would work, so I figured it
was worth trying. Lingonberry, a relative of the  cranberry, likes a
bit more water than the gooseberry, but the  drainage provided by the
raised bed should make both happy  bedfellows.

And, oh yeah, very nice plants. But anyone who's bought  from FF knows
that.
