BAKEAPPLE
(Rubus chamaemorus)

Known elsewhere as Cloudberries (the gold of the marshlands), these yellow grape-like berries grow in the bogs and wetlands and are ready for picking in late July and early August. The name Bakeapple is believed to be from the French, baie qu'appelle... meaning, 'what is this berry called?' Rich in Vitamin C, they can be eaten fresh but they preserve well and have been utilized by native peoples for centuries. Suitable for Wines, Jams, and Syrups.
