Merry Berry Facts

Contributed by: Chris WebAdmin. of

  • The cranberry is a cousin of the blueberry, another delicious berry that is indigenous to North America.
  • Native North Americans believed the cranberry had medicinal powers. They would use cranberries crushed with deer meat as a pemmican. They also used the juices as a dye.
  • There are more than 3,000 acres of cranberry farms in Canada in five provinces: British Columbia, Quebec, Nova Scotia, Ontario and New Brunswick.
  • About 90 per cent of cranberries are harvested wet and turned into juice or sauce; the remainder are harvested dry and sold as fresh fruit.
  • In 1912, realizing the berries harvested exceeded demand, an inventive cranberry grower named Marcus Urann came up with a delicious sauce that he canned and called Ocean Spray. For an updated and tasty new version, try Ocean Spray® Holiday Harvest Cranberry Sauce with grated orange.
  • More than 5.9 million cans of cranberry sauce were sold in Canada for Christmas 1999.
  • Take care of your health during the stressful holiday season:
  • According to studies conducted at the Harvard Medical School and Rutgers University in the U.S., the regular consumption of Ocean Spray® Cranberry Cocktail significantly reduces the likelihood of urinary tract infections.
  • Preliminary findings from the University of Western Ontario suggest that regular consumption of cranberry products may inhibit the development of breast cancer.
  • One 175 mL serving of Ocean Spray® Juices and Cocktails provides 100% of the recommended daily intake of Vitamin C
