Blackcap


Blackcap Raspberries (Rubus leucodermis) are as beautiful as they are delicious. Yesterday while picking, these ripening fruit inspired a photo shoot. Look for Blackcaps in clear-cuts and sunny forest edges. They normally ripen throughout July, but it has been an early year, so get them before the dry up!

  1. Blackcaps are huge out here in Michigan where they're *the* berry to pick for pies and jams. Back when I lived in WA they seemed to be scoffed at as inferior. Rubus ursinus was king (at least as far as my pie-making stepmother was concerned), especially in 2 year old clearcuts.

    We have a variation on the black-cap out here that produces a yellow berry -- kind of interesting, and something I never saw in Washington.
