Cranberries are a group of evergreen dwarf shrubs or trailing vines, mainly grow in the cooler regions of the world such as Canada. The fruit is a berry that is larger than the leaves of the plant; it is initially white, but turns a deep red when fully ripe. It is edible, with an acidic taste that can overwhelm its sweetness.
Cranberries are among the top foods with proven health benefits. About 95% of cranberries are processed into products such as juice drinks, sauce, and sweetened dried cranberries. The remaining are sold fresh to consumers.
