Fall Cranberry Harvest: Nantucket's Most Delicious Season

By: Kevin Bender
Related To:

As the days get shorter and the night gets nippier, there is one berry we still can’t get enough of: the cranberry. On Nantucket, a tiny island off the coast of Cape Cod, millions of cranberries are harvested every fall.  While Nantucket might be known best for its busy summer beach season, the fall is our favorite time of year on Nantucket.

That’s when the tourists disperse, and the bushes (or “moors,” to the locals) that blanket the island turn shades of autumnal brown and red.

And,  that's when the local cranberries are ready for harvesting.
