#251 Salmonberry

Berry Soon Now

Unripened Salmon Berry. Friday Harbor Labs, San Juan Island, Washington State.

Rubus spectabilis are native to the west coast of the United States from Alaska to California. They look much like a raspberry, but are less robust in flavor. They are good eaten raw and can be preserved, but taste best when mixed with another fruit for jams or jellies. Like Raspberries, Salmonberries are very seedy.
