The white flowers are produced in late spring or early summer, with the larger, sterile flowers at the outside of the cluster. The fruits ripen in August and are red, edible and quite acid. The flavor resembles that of a cranberry. Cultivars selected for their fruiting habit are 'Andrews', 'Hahs' and 'Wentworth'. The fall color is red.
