Air Date: 08/22/2021 -

Did you know that Wisconsin cranberry growers supply more than sixty percent of the nation’s cranberries; making Wisconsin the number one producer of cranberries in the world? It’s true! In this video we join Discover Wisconsin host Jack Taylor on a cranberry farm in Wisconsin Rapids, Wisconsin to learn all about Wisconsin’s state fruit: the cranberry!

Jack learns about some common misconceptions about cranberries (they actually do NOT grow in water!), how sustainable cranberry crops are, the industry’s significant economic impact, as well as the many health benefits! This tiny fruit packs a big punch, both in flavor and in homegrown Wisconsin pride!
