Blackberry Monday – Rubus L.

It is not about BlackBerry the smartphone device, this is about September harvest – Now it is time to harvest the lovely Blackberries and this year they are wonderful, so big and juicy. I’m going to make a Blackberry pie – I think…

Wikipedia says this about the Blackberries:

The blackberry is an edible berry in the Rubus genus and the Rosaceae family. The fruit are botanically termed an aggregate fruit and they are produced on plants that typically have biennial canes and perennial roots. Blackberries and raspberries are also called caneberries or brambles. It is a widespread and well known group of several hundred species, many of which are closely related apomictic microspecies native throughout the temperate Northern hemisphere and South America. Wikipedia   


Björnbär (Rubus subg. Rubus) är ett samlingsnamn på flera arter inom familjen Rosaceae, släktet Rubus. Den vanligaste är sötbjörnbär (Rubus plicatus). Björnbärskomplexet består ett stort antal arter, underarter och former, som hör till de mest svårskilda i vår flora. Odlade sorter är dessutom ofta hybrider av olika arter. De kallas ibland även “svarthallon” och “björnhallon” (se även blåhallon). Tidigare betraktade man björnbär som en enda art, vilken då kallades Rubus fruticosus.

    Tyra! I didn’t know you had this blog too – and I’m delighted to find it!

    It seems our hedgerows this year will be having a bumper harvest in terms of quantity but the flavour round here isn’t very good at present. I think it must be the lack of sun.

    The top photo makes the fruits look like jewels in dangly earings – and the little leaves like silver. . . . But what are the leaves? They aren’t blackberry!

    Best wishes
