Growing and harvesting

At the grower's

Nature's Pride sources cranberries from North America and Canada. Growers start harvesting around mid-September every year. Cranberry plants are three years old when they first produce (deep-red) fruit. Harvesting is a special process. The fields where the plants grow are partially submerged, with water coming from ponds or specially constructed basins.

Harvesters separate the cranberries from the plants the next day. A floating belt transports the fruits to small boats, which are hoisted from the water with a crane. The boats are then emptied into lorries. After the harvest, all the water is pumped away and the fields stay dry until the next season. Every plant can be harvested once a year. As a perennial, the cranberry plant can stay in production for a long time; often up to 20 years.

Packing house employees sort the cranberries by colour, size and softness. The fruits are then packaged for transport to the Netherlands.

Recipes & preparation tips

Cranberries are a surprising companion in the kitchen. For example, in haute cuisine: in a compote with roasted apples, a cranberry Bundt cake or a cranberry apple pie. Cranberry sauce, the traditional accompaniment to game dishes, is a real classic in the kitchen. Cranberries are also popular in bars, for example, as a tasty and attractive garnish for gin and tonic.
