Anyone know of one in northeast IL, southeast WI? Or any nurseries that carry lots of different small fruits you've had good experiences with I can call and see if they carry them. My mail order is falling through and I'd rather get some locally if I can find them, and I haven't seen any so far. I love lingonberries and really want to have fresh ones to use!

My sister lives in Aurora and has some property up in Wisconsin. She grows lingonberries and I just e-mailed her to find out where she got them.

Are you of Swedish descent?

Mostly Norwegian, and I do love me some Lingonberries. I did get my mail order, but they only sent me 2 of the cultivar I wanted and 3 of another I didn't particularly want. It's late in the season so I guess they ran out :( Thanks for asking your sister, there are a couple of cultivars that are supposed to be superior for fruit that I can't find (Ida, Balsgård), maybe she would know someone who sells them. Even if they're out for this year, itll give me an idea where to look next spring.

Now, out to do some digging!
