GENERAL INFORMATION:

Juniper Berries, or Juniperus communis, is also known as Common Juniper, Genévrier. Ginepro, Enebro, and Gemeiner Wachholder.

The juniper is an evergreen tree native to Europe, Asia, and the northern parts of North America and it is especially abundant in central Texas and Eastern Oregon.

FOLKLORE / FOOD / FUN FACTS:

--Juniper was the symbol of the Canaanites fertility goddess Ashera.
