I saw this one on Monday — a rubus of some sort (raspberry? cloudberry?). A few weeks from now should be a tasty time for a hike.
Our back yard patch is coming along pretty well this year, too. Hoping to break my record (@4 or 5 years ago) of 138 lbs.
Are you sure that's not a dingleberry?
it's a brambleberry
That might be a cloudberry. Raspberries grow on canes.
is that an arrowhead on the ground?
Can't tell by the picture, but it doesn't have the likeness of a raspberry. For those of you that like to pick off the branch, open them up first. As kids, we ate one batch off of DMIR that happened to be completely infested with nice little green larvae. Yumm.
This reminds me... I should check the raspberry bushes in my yard... or even just go outside.
I think it's a dewberry (could have other common names too):
I love thimbleberries, myself! It should be prime time for them!
My thimbleberries still have flowers!
can't be a dewberry because they stay red. likewise not a brambleberry. definitely not a cloudberry (those are golden when ripe... not red)... and we don't even *have* those in this area, do we?
i've eaten many of these, but have no idea what they are. they are often found along the Superior Hiking Trail, very short plants, not brambles by any means. i believe they're related to raspberries (because of the leaf), but they don't really taste like them too much.
i've searched with various search terms and had no luck in the identification either, Paul.
This link shows a red cloudberry, and Mn. as the only state in the lower 48 where they are found.
I really don't know, I just like the name " cloudberry". The fruit of the plant in the photo does look and taste a lot like a raspberry, if that's what I've sampled out in the wild.
Ahhh.. that's interesting. But the leaves are wrong in the cloudberry photo. It does, however, definitely fall into the rubus category, as Paul mentioned.
