Apples, pears, plums and cherries are the principal kinds of fruit cultivated, while the wild red cranberries from the Harz and the black bilberries from the Luneburger Heide form an important article of export.
At present cranberries are the only product of importance.
Its main products are sheep - the celebrated Heidschnucken breed, - potatoes, bilberries, cranberries and honey.
Grapes are grown on the mountain sides, cranberries on the bog lands near the coast, and nuts in the S.E.
Large quantities of cranberries are raised in the township. Plymouth is a port of entry, but its foreign commerce is unimportant; it has a considerable coasting trade, especially in coal and lumber.
The climate is favourable to the growth of plums, cherries, strawberries, raspberries, currants, gooseberries, etc. There are many localities in which cranberries are successfully grown, and in which blueberries also grow wild in great profusion.
