The cloudberry is a species of bramble, Rubus chamaemorus L., that produced tasty fruit. Cloudberries grow wild in cold parts of the Northern Hemisphere[?], notably in Scandinavia.

Cloudberries are rarely cultivated, but their fruits are commonly gathered from wild plants growing in the national forests in Scandinavia and in Finland. The fruit is also called a cloudberry; in Swedish it is hjortron; in Finnish it is lakka, suomuurain or hilla. Cloudberries are eaten fresh or made into jams or juices[?].

There is an indie rock band based in Linköping, Sweden called Cloudberry Jam[?].
