Botanical PronunciationROO-bus eye-DAY-us
LoreThe genus Rubus aka brambles falls into the Rosaceae family and may resemble some of the bramble roses. This group contains most of the berry fruits that are botanically speaking not true berries but drupe fruit. Linnaeus named it from the classical name for raspberries, ruber, meaning red. He chose the species name from the Roman physician Pliny's description of the plants on Mount Ida in Greece. It is a huge genus with over 400 species in North America alone, which causes great taxonomic confusion, as well as many others scattered throughout the Northern Hemisphere.
