Cloudberries

The season for cloudberries (Multe in Norwegian, Hilla or Lakka in Finnish, and Rubus chamaemorus in Latin) is here! This berry is very high in vitamin C, with 100 grams of berries yielding 263% of the daily recommended intake (Wikipedia). The berry grows in wet swampy areas, with larger berries growing in partly shaded swamps and smaller berries in open areas. In Norway, there berries also grow in sides on mountains, as they remain wet throughout the summer due to melt water.

Cloudberries are large and plentiful this year. Photo taken in Sodankylä Finland last week.
