    There are many varieties of these plants. When the fruit is eaten raw an interesting variety is a seedless one. Because the plants are propagated by cuttings the lack of seeds does not present a problem for reproduction. The fruit contains substances which are thought to protect against heart disease. (                    )

    The plants are generally dioecious in the wild (male and female flowers on separate plants). But hermaphroditic flowers have been selected to simplify crop production. (                                )

    This fruit only grows on 2nd year stems.
    It can be red, dark, purple or yellow. It's also the name of a dark reddish purple colour. (                             )

    It grows on very thorny bushes. The flowers are good nectar producers
    and give fruity honey. (                                )

    It's slighty sour and is cultivated for jams rather than for eating raw. It's native from northern and eastern Europe.
    Some of them have escaped gardens and can be found in the wild. (                                )

    It is said to improve night vision. In the late summer the dark purple berries are ripe to pick.
    They don't mature once gathered. (                          )

    It's generally green and of good flavour. At the end of the 18th century it became the favourite plant of cottage-horticulture especially in Lancashire where cotton-spinners worked to increase the size of the fruit.
    (                                )

    This fruit has a medical history. It has a vast array of health benefits. Currently it is widely cultivated in New-Zealand whose production is well-known for its high quality. (                                      )

    The plant is a dwarf shrub found in acidic peat-bogs throughout the cooler parts of the northern hemisphere. It is edible with an acidic taste. Most of them are processed into juice. They are little known in Europe. In northern America it's a major commercial crop. These berries are used to prevent urinary infections. The French name is 'canneberge' (                             )
