The cloudberry grows to 10-25 cm high. The leaves alternate between having 5 and 7 soft, handlike lobes on straight, branchless stalks. After pollination, the white (sometimes reddish-tipped) flowers form raspberry-sized berries. Encapsulating between 5 and 25 drupelets, each fruit is initially pale red, ripening into an amber colour in early
In late July, this tasty fruit attracts hundreds to the marshes around Garnish. They are most prolific between Garnish and Point Rosie and can be accessed by way of the Garnish-Point Rosie Trail. Locals have been known to pick as many as 200 gallons in a single season. You will find them in bakeapple cheesecakes, bakeapple pies, among other things, or simply used as a spread on bread.
