Pilgrim produces one of the largest and reddest fruits of any cranberry. It has a low growing spreading habit with attractive bronze coloured evergreen leaves - leathery in texture - that turn a rich red in autumn and winter.
Pink-red flowers in midsummer are followed by glossy, dark red berries with a distinctive tart flavour. Ideal for culinary use in sauces, compotes or juicing. The berries are rich in vitamin C and antioxidants. Suited to container growing and will also do very well in hanging baskets that suits its cascading habit. Pilgrim is one of the few cranberries that does not require boggy, saturated soil to produce high yields, acidic soil however, is essential. Where conditions allow, Pilgrim will grow into an attractive sprawling and ornamental plant giving excellent ground coverage. Self-fertile, but the presence of a pollinator will encourage a greater yield.
Mulch yearly with well rotted compost or manure to retain moisture and suppress weeds. Cut out some of the larger stems to ground level after harvesting of fruits.
Orders are wrapped in strong polythene to retain moisture, before being packed for despatch direct to your home.
