The Bloodberry bushes were originally a Blueberry bushes, but after the First war
the roots of the bushes on the edges off the battlefields couldn't reach any water. The blood of the two species
, transformed the plant into the Bloodberry bushes.
The bush has dark green leaves and vines. The blossoms are blood-red and the berry are the same color.
Wild and cultivated
After centuries the blood off the battlefields was drained by the bushes. Because the blood is not longer in the ground the wild bushes die. That is why the Vampires
started to grow the bushes inside greenhouses, were they poor blood from blood donors of both species over the soil.
Time of harvest
The bushes bloom in the early spring and they carry their blossoms until early summer. The berries are ripe in the fourth week after all the blossoms dispread.
Vampires are using the berries as a replacement for blood, so vampires don't have to drink human or animal blood to survive. Vampire children under the age off eighteen also uses the berries for drinks, syrups and sauces. Because they can't survive on the juice of the berries alone.
Because the Bloodberry
is an excellent replacement for blood, the noble families decided that it would be a crime to drink human and animal blood. An idea the vampires and vampire hunters both agreed on, but the vampire hunters also decreed that those who violated this rule would be killed on sight.
