Vaccinium vitis-idaea 'Erntesegen'
Erntesegen is one of the most productive European cultivars. It produces both a summer and fall crop of highly flavored sweet/tart large berries on the abundant branch tips. Pronounced "ern-ta-saw-gun", it means "blessed harvest" in Austrian! Unusually resistant to damage from high summer heat.
The vigorous plant with dark green leaves grows 12 to 15 inches tall and will spread from the roots to form a large clump. Select one Red Pearl as a pollinizer for every 10 productive plants if highest production is your goal. Lingonberries are very high in antioxidants. It is hardy to USDA Zones 4 and thrives in the Pacific Northwest and throughout most of the cooler parts of the nation.
