Cranberries Rule wrote:MADISON, Wis. -- The cranberry became Wisconsin's state fruit Monday, joining other official state symbols such as the badger and polka dancing.
The bill, signed into law Monday by Gov. Jim Doyle, was introduced by students from Trevor Grade School in Kenosha County. They pushed for the bill after learning Wisconsin did not have a state fruit.
The students initially thought the cherry should be the state fruit but eventually settled on the cranberry, Gov. Jim Doyle said.
