Why are cranberries floated in bogs?

    Cranberries grow on long-running vines in sandy bogs and marshes. Today most cranberries are wet harvested. This is done by flooding the bog with water so the berries float to the surface.

    Cranberries can only grow and survive in a very unique and specific set of factors: acid peat soil (below the water of the bog), a fresh water supply, and an April to November growing season. These bogs are now farmed very carefully but they were originally created by melting glacial deposits.
