Common Blackberry

Rubus fruticosus


The (usually) black fruit is not a true berry; botanically it is termed an aggregate fruit, composed of small drupelets. It is a widespread and well-known group of over 375 species, many of which are closely related apomictic microspecies native throughout the temperate Northern Hemisphere and South America.


I love eating wild blackberries but I love watching patches for other animals too. Berries of any kind usually attract animals.
