There are thirty seven varieties of edible berries grow in Finland. And even in the neighboring countries some of them are very rare! The harsh growing conditions in Finland lead to the berries' stronger development in terms of compounds. This makes them healthier than other countries' berries.

No judging if you prefer to pick and eat! They are so much sweeter and rich flavored than the cultivated strawberries!
