Today i decided to introduce my granddaughter to the world of wild berries. Along the Cape Ray seashore Bakeapples are ripening and on a hot day you can actually smell the aroma in the air. They ripen here in July but on the Table Mountains near our community it might take a week or two extra because of the elevation. I can remember as a child going out with the family on a Sunday afternoon and filling buckets with the berries.
Bakeapples/Cloudberry are native to most of the northern circumpolar areas. They are also found in Scandinavia, Siberia/Russia, Canada and the USA (Alaska and New Hampshire). It has also been observed in Greenland and Spitzbergen. Hopefully in the next few days i'll be able to go out and pick a few gallons. Today however i will post a few photos i shot this morning of them here.
