Do you have to pit cranberries?

Yes. The seeds are very small but visible within the four large air pockets of cranberries. They can be removed by slicing the berries in half and flushing with water. The seeds often present problems for people with diverticulitis or other gastrointestinal problems.

Can you eat the seeds in a cranberry?

It is so sour that most people can't stand to eat fresh cranberries alone. Cranberries contain edible seeds and plenty of air. Cranberry juice has been shown to reduce bladder infections in a nursing home environment.
