It is a shrub which grows on boggy mountains in England, and more northern regions; the leaves resemble those of the mallow or of the currant tree; the fruit is like the raspberry; when ripe it is sweet, tart, and of a yellowish red. It ripens in July and August. When ripe and boiled, without any addition, to the consistence of a pulp, it will not soon spoil, if closely covered in pots; and, as an antiscorbutic, far excels the scurvy grass, and vegetables of that tribe in common use.

The chamaemorus Norwegiae is a variety of the same species. Raii Hist.
