Jokkmokk is a paradise for those who loves tasty berries. In autumn, people in Jokkmokk use their spare time for gathering the healthy fruits. Happily enough, one do not need to picking them all by hand but can use a berry picker device. Simple to use it makes fruit picking fun and pain-free!
The four most common berries are blueberry, lingonberry, black crowberry and cloudberry. While the blueberry is very well known in many regions, the black crowberry – Kråkbär in Swedish – is not.
It is a flowering plant species in the heather family Ericaceae with a near circumboreal distribution in the northern hemisphere. A Swedish bear can absorb 20,000 Kcal / day by grazing currants and blueberries in the fall!
In the past, it was also an important part of the human diet in Northern Sweden, but that has being forgotten. Now it is regaining its reputation as healthy and good food, and if you are curious, check out the webshop of the Jokkmokk company Jokkmokks bär (look for products with Kråkbär).
