The crowberry is a 10–30 cm tall shrub. The berry itself is a glossy black drupe with mild flavour. The crop of crowberries is usually quite modest and the berries are fairly small. The crowberry has a long picking season. It can be harvested from the end of July until the first snow. The best picking time is in early August.
The crowberry is a good source of fibre. An excellent health benefit of this berry is the amount of anthocyanin compounds it contains, close to the amount found in wild bilberry.
Crowberries can be used either on its own or combined with other berries like bilberries and blackcurrants. Crowberries are suitable raw ingredient for e.g. jams, jellies, marmelade, baked goods, berry soups, porridges and milkshakes.
