Finnish people often go to forest to pick up their “golden fruits” which are berries. There are diverse types of berries such as blue berries, lingo berries, cranberries, and so on. Among them, cloud berry is the most precious one regarded as Arctic gold due to its high amount of nutrients.
The best picking-up season varies from the end of July to August. In good crop years, people can earn remarkable income by selling cloudberries.
