The leaves are also edible and make a wonderful addition to salads. Florida cranberry is often grown as a hedge. It can grow to be 4-8 feet tall and 3 feet wide. This variety has pink flowers; with its dark green leaves and red stems, it makes a visually striking plant.

Description

Florida Cranberry has few growing requirements except lots of sun. It is relatively flexible about watering and soil requirements. In USDA zones 9b – 11 it is a perennial. Farther north it is easy to collect the seeds in the fall and replant them in the spring. For places with exceptionally short growing seasons (less than 100 sunny days) they should be given a head start in a greenhouse, cold frame or grow light.

Safe Seed Pledge

Safe Seed Pledge Logo

Agriculture and seeds provide the basis upon which our lives depend. We must protect this foundation as a safe and genetically stable source for future generations. For the benefit of all farmers, gardeners and consumers who want an alternative,

We pledge that we do not knowingly buy, sell or trade genetically engineered seeds or plants.

The mechanical transfer of genetic material outside of natural reproductive methods and between genera, families or kingdoms, poses great biological risks as well as economic, political, and cultural threats. We feel that genetically engineered varieties have been insufficiently tested prior to public release. More research and testing is necessary to further assess the potential risks of genetically engineered seeds. Further, we wish to support agricultural progress that leads to healthier soils, genetically diverse agricultural ecosystems and ultimately healthy people and communities.
