This year our menu of Thanksgiving names draws on a variety of sources—from the Mayflower passenger list to prominent Pilgrims, to a harvest deity to the bounty of the Turkey Day table. Enjoy it— with it comes our best wishes for a very happy holiday to all our dear berries.
This unisex (think Berry Berenson, Berry Gordy) fruit name is not a recent coinage—it was actually Number 305 in 1880. And we’re proud to note that there has been a babyberry given this name, inspired by us. Another food-related possibility is stuffing herb Sage, also used for both genders.
