Cranberries are not just any fruit – they are America’s Original Superfruit.® As one of three commonly cultivated fruits native only to North America, cranberries are an important crop with roots deep in American history. More than 1,100 small family farmers – many of them fourth, fifth or even sixth generation – produce U.S. cranberries on 40,800 acres. Cranberries are grown across the United States in leading production states of Wisconsin, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Oregon and Washington. They are a versatile, nutrient-dense fruit that can be easily incorporated into sweet and savory dishes.
