Rubus arcticus: Nagoonberry


Rubus arcticus: Nagoonberry (Rubus arcticus)

Found just down form the house. Not common to find a fruiting bunch as they must cross pollinate from outside a colony.

What are the berries like? do they resemble raspberries? pretty pink blossom! Must you be careful not to harvest too soon from a young colony?

These resemble raspberry in shape though they are a pale cloudy pink in color. Some love the taste, some hate it, not a sweet raspberry. :-) You could pick a young patch dry, they spread more by rhisome which is why they must crossbreed with another patch to make fruit.
