edible or not

We have some wild (may be not) berries on my back yard (pictures attached). We don't know if they are edible or not. I tried one. It tastes good.

Do you know its name? I want to find out more information about it.

RE: edible or not

Blackberries? Bu the leaves don't look right.

RE: edible or not

Those look to me likerasberrys or mulberrys, so thye should be fine.

RE: edible or not

They look like Raspberries to me. The way to tell raspberries and blackberries apart is to pull off a fruit.

If you get a hollow berry that resembles a cup, it's a raspberry. If part of the stem comes off with the berry and it's not hollow, it's a blackberry.

There is a difference in the canes and the leaves as well.

RE: edible or not
