cranberry is aharalo

aharalo = cranberry (noun) (some things Google found for "aharalo": a rare term; bad OCR of old newspaper texts; appears on several gobbledygook webpages; similar ahora lo means now it in Spanish)

Word derivation for "cranberry" :
Basque = ahabi garratz (literally "blueberry bitter")
Finnish = karpalo
Miresua = aharalo

This is a new word. Cranberry sauce is a traditional dish at Thanksgiving dinners.

The word cranberry doesn't occur in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland or Through the Looking-glass.
