looks are deceiving kfander. Mountain ash berries come in big clusters, the berries look like miniature oranges. maybe a little redder. there are varieties that do not have so much bitter in it. And of course they grow on a tree. they also are used like cranberries. We did not eat them because mother did not like them. But I used them every fall for decoration, because they are so beautiful.
to me, lingon berries taste a lot like cranberries. I could tell them apart though. When I first had cranberries, I thought, typical American, everything has to be bigger in this country. even the lingon berries.
