About Blackberries
and Raspberries

Blackerries and Raspberries
The distinction between blackberries and raspberries revolves around fruit characteristics. All bramble fruits are aggregate fruits, which means they are formed by the aggregation of several smaller fruits, called drupelets. The drupelets are all attached to a structure called the receptacle, which is the fibrous central core of the fruit. In raspberries, the receptacle remains with the plant when fruit are picked, creating the hollow appearance of the harvested fruit. In blackberry, the drupelets remain attached to the receptacle, which comes off with the fruit when picked. A second distinction - raspberry drupelets are hairy and adhere to one-another, whereas blackberry drupelets are hairless and smooth. Some of the most important commercially grown brambles are actually blackberry - red raspberry hybrids. Examples include ‘Boysenberry', ‘Loganberry', and ‘Young berry'. The fruit flavor is unique, but culture and management is more like blackberry than raspberry.
