Here are a few varieties of berries, with their names in English and in Spanish. Berries mostly originate in cold climates. Each has its unique color and size and taste and nutrient content. Despite these obvious differences, in Central and South America, the name “mora” is often given to any berry except strawberries. The correct generic term for berries, “bayas”, is almost never used. The word “Arandano” is often used for both blueberries and cranberries. Hopefully this page will help clear up any confusion over the correct terms for several popular berries in English and in Spanish.
