A Split open Cranberry
The flesh of the inside of a tart, ripe and fresh cranberry is white. The inner most part is red because of the seeds which look kind of crimson-like when extracted and put into a pile.
Why are some Cranberries White?
White cranberries are merely regular cranberries that are picked before they’re ripe, at which time they turn red. In fact, when you buy fresh red cranberries you’ll sometimes see small remnants of white on some of the berries.
Signs of Ripeness and Color
If the cranberries you are about to pick are a crimson red or a bright red then that’s a good sign that they are ripe. A green cranberry, like a banana, is not yet ready. A dark purple color means it’s too late. They should be firm and not squishy.
Hope this helps. Remember, National Cranberry Day is coming up in November so get ready to celebrate the day by indulging in some delicious cranberry recipes.
