  • In addition to alchemy, they are used in baking the Snowberry CrostataHF and the Lavender DumplingHF.
  • Snowberry bushes actually come in two different versions: one dusted with snow and another that is snow free. Both yield the same ingredient, however.
  • Snowberries seem to be based off the real-world Holly tree, such as the leaf shape, berry color and fruit growth formation. However, Holly is a tall tree in real life, and the Snowberry is a bush in the game.
