Nope, Cranberry shouldn't be plural. The plant is called the Mountain Cranberry.

I'd say that the sign is incorrect based on the the cranberries being plural. In my opinion, it should read "Mountain Cranberries'", indicating plural possession.

I agree, actually — "…showy red berries" is a continuation of a sentence, not the start of a new one. If the S in "showy" was capitalized I'd say "Mountain Cranberry's" was incorrect.

This one is actually correct, it's referring to the berries of the Mountain Cranberry plant.

Actually, that works. They are "Mountain Cranberry" and the text goes on to talk about *their* cranberries.
