The cranberries are a group of evergreen dwarf shrubs.
Cranberries are tart, round, deep red berries, grown primarily in wet, sandy coastal lands, or bogs, in the northeastern United States.
They are available fresh autumn through early winter and frozen year-round. Cranberries are low, creeping shrubs to 10 cm tall (often less), with slender, wiry stems, not thickly woody, and small evergreen leaves.
The flowers are dark pink, with very distinct reflexed petals, leaving the style and stamens fully exposed and pointing forward.
The fruit is a berry that is larger than the leaves of the plant. It is initially white, but turns a deep red when fully ripe.
The name cranberry probably derives from their being a favorite food of cranes, though some sources claim the name comes from "'craneberry' because before the flower expands, its stem, calyx, and petals resembled the neck, head, and bill of a crane".

Allergy or hypersensitivity to any of the ingredients.
Caution is suggested for patients with diabetes or glucose intolerance; commercially prepared cranberry juices can contain large quantities of sugar; patients who have a risk of kidney stones should also use with care due to cranberry's high level of oxalate.
Aspirin allergy: Cranberries contain significant amounts of salicylic acid. Salicylic acid is similar to aspirin. Avoid drinking large quantities of cranberry juice if you are allergic to aspirin.
