Allegheny blackberry

Rubus allegheniensis

Notes:

The Cherokee used the berries for making juice and of course ate them raw or cooked with other foods.They also used the roots to treat treat diarrhea and rheumatism. A similar infusion was used as an external wash to treat piles (eg., hemorrhoids). It was combined with honey to prepare a wash for sore throats, and a decoction of leaves was prepared to regulate urination (Hamel and Chiltoskey 1975). A similar preparation was used as a stimulating drink. http://www.texasbeyondhistory.net/coast/... Two ways to tell blackberries from dewberries... 1)blackberries grow higher than dewberries. 2)both stems have thorns but the dewberries have fuzz to the stems with the thorns as well. http://thepapershell.com/blackberries-or...
