Steps for Harvesting Cranberries
Getting a cranberry crop to bear fruit is no simple task. It requires the most delicate balance of seasons and science. The fields where the vines grow must contain highly acidic soil. The farms themselves must be set up in such a way as to make the methods of harvesting efficient. The wet harvesting requires the fields – known as cranberry bogs – to be flooded and drained efficiently.
In spring, when the bogs are drained, the blossoms will appear for bees to pollinate.
By mid-summer, the petals fall from the flowers, leaving tiny green nodes that eventually turn into cranberries.
Fall is harvest season and from September to mid-November the bogs are flooded again so the fruit floating on top of the water can be harvested. The farmers comb the berries off the vine, receiving a large volume of fresh berries from the surface of the water.
In winter, the bogs remain flooded with water, which freezes and insulates the vines from frost. This provides the crop with the coolness it craves, plus a degree of protection so the cycle can repeat itself.
