11 Delicious Rare Berries from Around the World

2. Crowberry (Empetrum)

These berries grow on a dwarf evergreen shrub, which occurs in colder climates throughout the Northern Hemisphere, as well as in the southern Andes Mountains. They don’t have a strong flavor, but are watery and a little sweet. They are also a useful staple crop for indigenous people who live in subarctic areas.

Thanks for making my mouth water. I think I'll go and eat a Kiwi fruit, which I think is a real berry.

I eat aronia raw. It's amusing to think some sources consider it inedible. One can dry it and use as a tea.
