The Cowberry has its origins in northern Eurasia. Even the North American natives used them as a remedy against colds and wounds
Cowberries grow on small, evergreen half shrubs, which entwine along the floor and are richly ramified. They love damp locations.
The fruits are approximately 15 to 20 mm and are large, round, oval or pear-shaped.
After the domestic harvest is finished, they are primarily imported from Sweden and Finland.
As they ripen in September/October, the color changes from light green to pink and finally red. The firm pulp of the cowberry has a reddish colouring with some varieties reaching magenta or crimson.
The fruit has a particularly high content of vitamin C. Cowberries stimulate the activity of intestine and its functions.
