Or they could be known by an entirely different name.
Cranberry derives from the Middle Low German (North German from between the
13th and 15th Centuries) "kran bere". The berries certainly predate the
term, so it is likely they were called something else before they became
cranberries. It's also possible that the name is an artifact of the herbals
and botanical studies and that they were lumped with other berries before
Lots of nice information in your post.
