Crowberry agg. (Empetrum nigrum)

A very low-growing plant with woody lower stems. The leaves are glossy green, short, stubby and fleshy similar to those of some Stonecrops.

The fruits contain mostly water. Their vitamin content is low, as is the concentration of volatile liquids, the lack of which makes them almost odorless. The acidity is lower than is typically encountered in forest berries
