Rubus

Inhabiting many parts of the world, Rubus, commonly referred to as “Brambles”, are a large genus of flowering plants belonging to the rose family. Most of these plants are prickly, displaying oval to heart-shaped leaves and consist of arching, entangling stems arising from a woody crown, forming thickets up to several metres high. The berries from brambles are small edible fruit that contain seeded juicy segments (drupelets). Berries change colour as they ripen, from green to red, or green to red to a purplish black, depending upon the variety of fruit.
