• Black Raspberry (Rubus occidentalis) & Wild Blackberry (Rubus allegheniensis)

    Family Name: Rosaceae (Rose Family)

    Black raspberry and wild blackberry plants are found throughout Ohio. Although both plants are arching thorny brambles, you can easily differentiate them by looking for the white coating on the stems of the black raspberry plants and the raised ridges on the stems of the wild blackberry plants.
