Rubus leucodermis (native to western North America), Rubus occidentalis (native to eastern North America) and Rubus coreanus (native to Korea, Japan and China). Small and very dark, almost black, fruit with clusters of juice-filled drupelets, similar to blackberries. Oregon farmers have been growing the black raspberry for more than a century. Choose firm, dry berries, as this variety is extremely fragile. Refrigerate at all times and use within two days of purchase or picking.
