For most families, Thanksgiving wouldn’t be Thanksgiving without turkey. Or cranberries… Cranberry cultivation soon caught on in New Jersey, since cranberries grow wild on long-running vines in South Jersey’s sandy bogs and marshes. The Pine Barrens proved a perfect place for the beginning of a new cranberry industry… Because of the cranberry’s importance to New Jersey agriculture, Rutgers University maintains the Philip E. Marucci Center for Blueberry and Cranberry Research and Extension in Chatsworth. Visit the center’s website at http://pemaruccicenter.rutgers.edu/.
