Description:
Thick lobed rugose leaves on 30cm tall sub-shrub. In spring white flowers are followed by raspberry/salmonberry like fruits which start ripening mid August. Best picked when the colour transitions from red to a glowing apricot. Tart flavour that is somewhat like a creamsicle (vanilla and orange frozen yogurt). Spreads via underground runners and by seed. In the field it grows well in full sun and doesn't seem to be very shade tolerant. Very hardy. Used for jam, jellies, fresh and a traditional Nordic Lakkalikööri liqueur.

Notes:
Gendered species. Found growing with crowberry, bog blueberry, bog cranberry. The 'Bakeapple' name might have came from the French question 'baie qu'appelle?'...."what berry is this?"

Cultivation:
Soak seed 24-48 hours. Cold stratify 270 days then provide 18C for germination. Never ever let the medium dry out. Thrives in full sun and constant moisture.

Harvest Date: Saturday 11 August, 2012
