Fruit portraits of
'Wentworth' Highbush Cranberry


Highbush Cranberry

Spring's lacecap flowers of Viburnum trilobum 'Wentworth'
have become green berries by June, with flushes of red by early July,
as shown here. Before July's end, the berries will be glassy bright red.
These are going to cling to the branches well into Autumn.


The fruit reach their peak of color in August.
Birds tend not to eat them until after they've gone
through a couple morning frosts & are a mite less tart.


This October photo shows the berries beginning to fade a little,
having passed through their brightest red period. If birds don't get them,
there will still be a few faded berries on the naked branches
when leaf-fall is completed.
