CLOUDBERRY

The Cloudberry (Rubus chamaemorus) is a juicy, amber yellow relative of the blackberry and raspberry, and is also known as salmonberry or yellowberry.  Cloudberries are found in subartic regions of the north temperate zone, such as New England, Canada and Scandinavia. They are too tart to eat out of hand, but are excellent used in preserves and liqueurs.

Cloudberries are one of the few fruits that grow in the Arctic Circle and are very much admired in the Scandinavian countries. The location of berry patches is kept a closely guarded secret and picking cloudberries on someone else's land can lead to fights. Disagreements also arise over whose land a good cloudberry patch is growing on.

In Finland and Norway there are strict rules about cloudberry picking and in Sweden, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs has a department devoted to cloudberry disputes.
