About the Producers:
The Dark Tickle Company is located in Griquet, on the Great Northern Peninsula in the province of Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada. The company itself employs a relatively small number of people involved in processing. They purchase from a network of approximately 100 individual pickers covering a large area including the top half of the Great Northern Peninsula of Newfoundland, the coastal regions of southern Labrador, and northeastern Quebec. Berry picking, which has been historically, and still is a strong tradition in areas such as these, is now also perhaps one step in the slow diversification of a fishery based economy.

Bakeapple:
anglicized from the French, 'baie qu'appelle...' meaning, 'what is this berry called..?', is internationally known as a 'Cloudberry'. It is similar in appearance to a rather large raspberry and has what some say a distinct honey/apricot-like flavour. Others claim its unique delectableness is beyond compare. The color is orange/yellow and grows one berry to a plant approximately 3-4" high. Bakeapples are members of the rose family having close relatives such as the raspberry, blackberry, nagoonberry, and thimbleberry. Male and female flowers grow seperately with each plant growing a single white, five petalled flower from the tip of the stem. The fruit is red when unripe and turns a soft golden orange at maturity. They are generally ready for picking around mid August. Bakeapples occupy a variety of moist northern tundra and peat bog habitats. These berries are extremely rich in vitamin C and contain few calories.
