Wineberries

I know I talk a lot about my mother-in-law's backyard and her prolific crop of black raspberries and wild raspberries.....but I got the surprise of my life last week, when I was reading another blog.....I am definitely picking black raspberries, but the wild raspberries are actually wineberries.  Wineberries are not native to the USA. They are actually from Asia, but grow beautifully in our area and climate.  They have less seeds than regular raspberries and to me, they are much sweeter and they make a great apple/wineberry pie!!!!

So Catie, tonight, I'll be bringing you your quart of wineberries!
ENJOY!

I wonder if those are what's growing wild near my work? I'll have to do some research....and maybe get more "specimens" ;)

Please show us photos of your pie!

I wonder if these are more popular in the East as I have never heard of them.

The juice from the berries wanted to drip onto my computer! They look wonderful!

Wow! Look at all the comments you got on this subject. I say the only way you could improve raspberries is to take out the seeds! Lucky you...
