i tell you what it tastes lovely


I do not think clouberry corresponds to the definition of a bramble. --Philipum 30 June 2005 13:35 (UTC)

aha. well, a bramble is a species of rubus, so is the cloudberry. Denisoliver 11:32, 21 July 2005 (UTC)

All brambles are Rubus, but not all Rubus are brambles, only some (Rubus fruticosus and close allies). I'd not call Cloudberry a bramble. - MPF 17:55, 9 September 2005 (UTC)

It looks similar to a bramble to me - well at least like the bramble / raspberry / loganberry family.

Strangely enough, when I was staying in Alaska, these were called salmonberries or aqpik. Anyone else familiar with the use of salmonberries like this? -Yupik 14:15, 17 July 2006 (UTC)

I believe that cloudberries are also called mûres arctiques in French. Please fix the article if this is wrong. DPoon 20:26, 17 October 2006 (UTC)

Uses[edit]

These wonderful fruit have a unique creamy texture/taste when very ripe, reminded me of peach yoghurt, tangy and mildly sweet. Halogenated 03:14, 13 April 2007 (UTC)

Here in southwest Alaska (Yupik Eskimo country) we call cloudberries Salmon berries. But I see the definition for salmon berry is one that is grown on high bushes on the aleutian chain and is more like a Raspberry.(they are somewhat flavorless) Cloudberries are very tart and are good for making Agutuk ( Eskimo Ice Cream). Can be very good mixed with strawberries or blue berries. The juice is excellent for making Jelly and the berries make a very good jam. Very rich in vitamen C. My Mom used to make pie out of the berries also. When there is a lot of snow during the winter the elders say there will be a lot of cloudberries. And sure enough after this years record snow fall we have a bumper year of Cloud Berries (remember we call them salmon berries here) fredn2 —Preceding unsigned comment added by Fredn2 (talkcontribs) 07:24, 15 August 2008 (UTC)

Some have even questioned whether Cloudberries are a myth.[1][edit]

After a brief glance I could not find anything backing this sentence in the reference, could someone please confirm and delete it? 62.113.159.156 (talk) 08:21, 3 July 2008 (UTC)

I was looking through the link as well, since the sentence caught my eye. Could not find anything but someone's quite interesting travel log. I wonder if it's just someone's idea of a joke? I will remove the line and the reference.

Pricing[edit]

10 euros for a kilo of cloudberries seems low in Norway for an upper limit. About a week ago I saw berries for sale at a sidewalk store in Oslo (Gyldenløves gate), the sticker asked for 220,- Norwegian kroner per kilo which equals more than 28 Euros at the current exchange rate. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 178.232.27.129 (talk) 21:28, 11 September 2010 (UTC)

Long Island[edit]

Doing a Google search for references to cloudberry on Long Island turns up a whole lot of not very much; a few reliable-looking references from the early 20th century refer to R. chamaemorus as having been found at a single site at Montauk Point, but reliable-looking later sources such as Aquatic and Wetland Plants of Northeastern North America indicate that that site has been destroyed. (see http://books.google.com/books?id=iwu5njkUFuoC&pg=PA188&lpg=PA188&dq=%22Rubus+chamaemorus%22+%22montauk%22+%22site+destroyed%22&source=bl&ots=STDuy7vCPz&sig=ak9ulG0nzNty-TpAtWUrxo8xoNg&hl=en&sa=X&ei=-El5Ub7NL6GT0gHY3YC4Dw&ved=0CDMQ6AEwAQ#v=onepage&q=%22Rubus%20chamaemorus%22%20%22montauk%22%20%22site%20destroyed%22&f=false) I haven't found any references to any other site on Long Island where cloudberry currently grows. So I added a citation needed tag; I suggest we delete the mention of Long Island unless somebody can find a better source to back up that claim. 206.208.105.129 (talk) 15:30, 25 April 2013 (UTC)
