High Level

The cranberry is a North American fruit that grows on a bush. It is rather small, round, red and very bitter. American Indians used them for food and medicine. When settlers first came from England in 1600s, they liked these berries too. The settlers had never seen the berries before.

They decided to call them “crane berries”, because birds called cranes ate them.

The cranberry bush doesn`t grow everywhere in the United States. In fact, it grows only in five states. These states have the special conditions that the cranberry bush needs.

Cranberries ripen when the weather starts to become cold. We can see them in the shops in autumn. Many people eat cranberries as part of the feast of Thanksgiving in November.

Sometimes cranberries are cooked and made into some sauce or jelly. They taste less bitter after they are cooked. The best cranberries are the ones that bounce down seven steps!
