Product information "Arom'arctic® Nyby"

Arom'arctic® Nyby grows, flowers and produces fruit. And at a quick rate. This plant from the far north has no time to lose; it starts to grow as soon as it gets warmer and the winter is over. And it radiates signs of spring like only a few other plants. At plant exhibitions in the spring we see how people feel attracted to this spring plant that blooms so early and quickly. They probably see their own spring fever mirrored in the plant ;-)
The cloudberry, the common name of Arom'arctic® Nyby, has an almost emblematic character in Scandinavia; you see it at markets and as an image on banknotes and coins and also as a jam in the shelves at IKEA.
In the garden, the arctic cloudberry finds its place planted in bog gardens along with blueberries, rhododendrons or azaleas. And it turns to its typical orange/amber colour in June, indicating its maturity; once it has accomplished its year’s work it dies back to the ground in autumn, strengthening itself for the next spring.
And how does it taste, you ask impatiently? We cannot think of many words. But we know this: It’s sweeter than sweet.

Cultivation: Requires acidic soil, pH: 3.5-5.5, preferably semi-shade, little fertilisation
Flowers: Forms new herbaceous shoots every year that bloom at the end in May to the end of June, large, white flowers, yellow sepals
Maturity: June to July, long flowering time precedes the fruit ripening
Fruits/flavour: Fruits are ripe when the sepals turn away and release a yellow-orange fruit that tastes very sweet
Fertilisation: Not a problem, as Arom'arctic Nyby® is the first monoecious species that can fertilise itself (both male and female sex organs are available)
Habit: Large, herbaceous leaves, only 5-25 cm tall, beautiful red colouring of autumn leaves, which later die back to the roots
Health: Very robust, absolutely hardy in the winter, down to -35 degrees Celsius; if it has budded early, the herbaceous shoots can somewhat freeze back again, so rather plant in partial shade
Tip: The fruits can also be harvested when they are not ripe (so that more can be harvested at a time); they then mature in the sun afterwards


Protect plants from sprouting too early Very continental or Nordic plants that start immediately in the spring temperatures can sometimes feel the spring too early in our climate - already in February or beginning of March, in windy regions in the Alps or generally mild winter weather. It makes sense to cover such plants, such as the arctic raspberry Systrar or cloudberry Nyby and many others with some straw in February in order to prevent too early budding and the vulnerability towards weather setbacks and frosts. The straw is then not only used once for isolation from the cold, but also against too early heat.

The Cloudberry does not need much time to carry fruit for the first time.
It should carry some fruit next year. The colour of the ripe fruits in dark Amber-yellow.
