Last year I gave you some fun facts about Canadian Thanksgiving, so this year, inspired by an awesome book from Roaring Brook, here are a few fun facts about cranberries:

Contrary to popular belief, cranberries do not grow in water. They are grown on sandy bogs or marshes. Because cranberries float, some bogs are flooded when the fruit is ready for harvesting.

If you strung all the cranberries produced in North America last year, they would stretch from Vancouver to St. John’s more than 360 times.

Cranberries are sometimes used to flavour wines, but do not ferment as naturally as grapes, making them unsuitable for the traditional wine-making process.
