I love 'em! Have 3 very old trees.

I hate 'em...cause the kids love 'em...and climb the trees to eat the heck out of mulberries, and stain their clothes.

I've picked about five pounds of DEWBERRIES this week in Prairieville LA:


My BLACKBERRIES (potted) are starting to fruit now:

How the hell do you tell the difference? I thought this whole time I have been eating blackberries. I ate what I thought were blackberries behind my parents house Saturday. Sure as hell tasted like a blackberry.

I'm so jealous! I've only gotten a handful so far.

In 2 weeks, different story!

Pretty easy really. Time of year makes it to where you really don't have to know squat about the plants. But, Dewberries are low crawlers. Blackberries make more sturdy stalks that grow upward. If you are finding them before summer, you are finding dewberries. Summer = blackberries.

Dewberries have tons of small thorns.

Blackberries don't have many thorns at all. The thorns they do have are much larger than the dewberries.

Check it out for yourself:

Both photos taken in Pville LA.

Your blackberry plant looks VERY different than the wild ones around here.

Son of a bitch, I thought they were all black berries. Guess you learn something new everyday.

I learned something today!

I've alway called them dewberries, but I suspected that "dewberry" was just an improperly-used local name for wild blackberries. Thanks W!

Not surprising. It isn't wild. Bought it from Walmarks last season.

Dewberry beta (from Wikipedia):

quote:

The dewberries are a group of species in the genus Rubus, section Rubus, closely related to the blackberries. They are small trailing (rather than upright or high-arching) brambles with berries reminiscent of the raspberry, but are usually purple to black instead of red. Unlike many other Rubus species, dewberries have separate male and female plants (they are dioecious)

My blueberries should be coming in, about 3 more weeks.

Screw a blackberry. Soak them in saltwater and see a shite load of bugs that come out. Just washing them in fresh water don't cut it.

Ate many in my time.
