Pilgrim Cranberry

The Pilgrim Cranberry (Vaccinium macrocarpon 'Pilgrim') is a popular cranberry cultivar that is known for its large, tart berries and its ability to grow in a variety of climates. It is a good choice for home gardens and commercial cranberry farms alike.

Pilgrim Cranberry plants are vigorous growers and can reach up to 6 inches tall and 12 inches wide. They have a trailing habit and are covered in small, leathery leaves that are a dark green color. The flowers are small and pink, and they bloom in the late spring. The berries ripen in the fall and are a deep red color.

Pilgrim Cranberry plants prefer full sun to partial shade and moist, well-drained soil. They are also tolerant of cold weather and can survive temperatures as low as -30 degrees Fahrenheit.

To care for Pilgrim Cranberry plants, water them regularly, especially during the first year after planting. Fertilize the plants in the spring with a balanced fertilizer. Mulch around the plants with organic matter, such as pine needles or wood chips, to help retain moisture and suppress weeds.

Pilgrim Cranberry plants are a beautiful and productive addition to any landscape. They can be used as a ground cover in borders or as a border plant themselves. The berries can be eaten fresh, cooked, or made into jams, jellies, and other preserves.

Here are some additional tips for growing Pilgrim Cranberry plants:

  • Choose a spot in full sun to partial shade with moist, well-drained soil.
  • Plant the cranberries in the spring or fall.
  • Water the cranberries regularly, especially during the first year after planting.
  • Fertilize the cranberries in the spring with a balanced fertilizer.
  • Mulch around the cranberries with organic matter, such as pine needles or wood chips, to help retain moisture and suppress weeds.
  • Harvest the cranberries in the fall when they are a deep red color.

Enjoy the delicious and nutritious berries of the Pilgrim Cranberry plant!

Note: The plant is shipped in its pot, firmly secured with several layers of clear tape, thereby avoiding any shuffling and moving during transit. The plant reaches you with minimal damage- very safe and secure. We have been shipping plants like this for several years (plant are sometimes shipped in smaller pots for safety and ease of shipping). Most plants go dormant in fall and winter and will lose most of their leaves - looking dead and dry - very normal. They will flush out in spring.

We cannot send ship some plants and some sizes to California due to restrictions placed by department of agriculture.

Note
Please note that the plant will be shipped in its pot, securely fastened with multiple layers of clear tape to prevent any shifting or damage during transit. This ensures that the plant arrives to you with minimal damage, safely and securely. We have been employing this method for shipping plants for several years, occasionally using smaller pots for added safety and convenience during transit. It's important to understand that many plants enter a dormant state during the fall and winter months, resulting in the loss of most leaves and appearing dry or lifeless. This is a natural process, and come springtime, they will begin to regrow and thrive once again. Please be aware that due to regulations set by the Department of Agriculture, there are certain plants and sizes that we are unable to ship to California. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
