Lingonberries are native to Scandinavia, Europe, Alaska, and northeastern Canada, but are not widely cultivated. Known commercial lingonberry acreage is less than 100 acres worldwide, and one-third is in the Pacific Northwest. Lingonberries are well suited to cooler climates and can be expected to do well in regions where blueberries and cranberries are productive. This publication describes the plant; discusses uses and products; lists cultivars; and outlines cultural management, pest management, harvesting, and marketing methods. Current lingonberry suppliers are listed with contact information.
