Rubus occidentalis, or black raspberry, is a unique species of deciduous shrubs native to eastern North America. This shrub's common name comes from the tasty and shiny black fruit clusters that follow its 1/2" white flowers. Black raspberries contain high levels of anthocyanins, making them useful as natural dye and with potential nutraceutical value as an antioxidant. Black raspberries are easily grown in well-drained loamy soil in sun or semi-shade. This shrub produces fruits that may closely resemble blackberries but have a unique taste that is distinct from that of red raspberries or blackberries. Furthermore, yellow-fruited variants sometimes occur due to anthocyanin production mutations and retain the species' distinctive flavor. Black raspberries are also marketed in season, dried or frozen, made into purées and juices, or processed as colorants. Try black raspberries and their potential nutraceutical benefits today!
