The lingonberry is a plant with a great history that is virtually unknown. It has been an important food source in the northern hemisphere since the time of the cavemen with its profuse fruit bearing capacity and high vitamin and anti-oxidant content. While nearly forgotten today, it should be a home gardener’s dream with its great look, compact form, double cropping of fruit and incredible ease of care. ‘Koralle’ is a dense, slow growing, spreading evergreen shrub with glossy green leaves on flat, spreading branches that will bloom in April and May to produce a crop of bright red, glossy, firm fruit that will be ready for harvest in July and August. ‘Koralle’ will surprise you with another round of bloom during the summer as the first group of fruit maturing, forming a considerable crop of berries for harvest in September. As you can see, ‘Koralle’, with its grat history, still has the goods to be memorable in your garden as long as you plant it in a sunny, well-drained spot and don’t forget to pick! Eat lingoberries fresh, in prepared desserts or even juiced other fruit for refreashing, healthty drink!
