they live and produce 70 years and longer.
grow best in a sandy soil that is an acid type,with a ph. of 3.5-5.0,and grow best around & right up to any lake-pond- ditch,even a mud hole!
if you have a ditch around or through your fields,then you can raise some wonderful cranberries on this wasted ground all the way to the waters edge!

just a sprinkel of fertilizer when the blossoms appear,and keep the weeds down.
