|Best as we can tell this is the native American red raspberry. For more information: plants.usda.gov/java/profile?symbol=RUIDS2|
This raspberry was very common around the Loft Mountain Campground. Manuel and I wondered why. We speculated that most people thought they were unripened black berries. Indeed that was true when one of our friends confirmed he thought they were unripened black berries. I knew better and picked a bowl full. They were a tasty addition on my peanut butter and honey sandwiches.
