Grower: Kelly

Year: 2017

Accession: 328

Seed Source: Michelle Smith, Cape Breton, NS.


2017 Awesome variety, did really well for me on the prairies in a non-ideal season. I started with a handful of seeds I received from Michelle on a trip to Truro, NS in 2016 and now have a good stock at the end of 2017 to really get a good harvest in 2018 so I can reshare as much as possible. Good for fresh and dried use, although do get the pods early to avoide woodiness.

  • Likely originally 'Vermont Cranberry', but grown by the Trappist monks in Tracadie NS since the 1930's and now genetically distinct.
