A cider made from crushed Manzanita berries is the favorite native drink of the Maidu and other native CA tribes. Nutritional testing shows that Manzanita berries provide three times the antioxidants of pomegranates, blueberries and cranberries.

Sometimes a treasured native plant lives unnoticed in the landscape, viewed only as a shrub to get rid of. But our children haven’t forgotten. Kids still run through the Sierra Nevada mountains every August feasting on the sweet-tasting Manzanita berries.
