Answer by norm
They grow in water.
Cranberry bogs they call them.
Cranberries are one of the few food crops that is native to New England (Cape Cod) is the cranberry (Vaccinium macrocarpon), which grows in acid bogs. A bog is a water-logged depression filled with sphagnum moss (peat moss), and is so acid and poor in available nitrogen that typical plants cannot grow there. Many members of the heath family, such as blueberries (Vaccinium spp.) and azaleas (Rhododendron spp.), also grow well in acid, peat soils.
The cranberry plant–called a vine by growers–is a long-lived perennial less than eight inches high with trailing, thin, wiry stems that bear small, opposite, evergreen leaves. Cranberry flowers appear around the Fourth of July; these are white to light pink, downward-pointing, bell-shaped, axillary flowers. The common name cranberry is a modification of the colonial name “crane berry,” because the drooping flower looked like the neck and head of the sand crane, which was often seen eating the fruits.
