Wisconsin State Fruit: Cranberry (Vaccinium macrocarpon)

The Wisconsin State Fruit is the cranberry (Vaccinium macrocarpon).

Wisconsin State Fruit- The cranberry was designated the state fruit by 2003 Wisconsin Act 174. The legislation was the culmination of a class project by fifth grade students from Trevor Grade School in Kenosha County, who decided that the cranberry, rather than the cherry, was the best candidate for Wisconsin’s state fruit. Wisconsin leads the nation in cranberry production, accounting for over half of the nation’s output. Cranberries are grown in 20 of Wisconsin’s 72 counties, primarily in the central part of the state.
