Lingonberries offer an exciting addition of color and fruit for northern gardens. Lingonberries are a super hardy dwarf perennial evergreen shrub reaching 4 to 16 inches high, slowly spreading through underground rhizomes. Lingonberries bloom twice, once in early spring and once in early summer. With adequate frost protections, both blooms will give way to fine crops of sparkling red, pea sized fruit very high in vitamin C and other fruity acids. The berries have a slightly tart taste when eaten fresh, but really excel in sauces, jams, jellies, and wine. In Europe, Lingonberries have a long history of medicinal uses, from lowering cholesterol levels to curing gastric distress and rheumatism. Zones 2-7.
