Rubus spp.



The blackberry is an edible fruit that originates from a wide range of species belonging to the genus Rubus that is part of the family of Rosaceae, but also from hybrids within the Rubus subgenus, and hybrids between the Rubus and Idaeobatus subgenera.

The blackberry is actually not a berry botanically speaking. It is a so-called aggregate fruit that consists of small kernels.
