The blackberry is an edible fruit made by any of several species in the Rubusgenus of the Rosaceae family. Blackberries and raspberries are also called "caneberries" or "brambles".
It is a widespread and, well known, group of over 375 species which are closely related apomictic microspecies. They are native all over the temperate Northern hemisphere and South America. The blackberry grows to about 3 m in height. It makes an edible black fruit, known by the same name. The plant tolerates poor soil very well. It is very pervasive. It will grow fast, taking over uncultivated spots very fast. The black, juicy plump ones taste sweeter than the pre-mature blackberries (the red ones).
