Red Car Property: Blackberries?*

Photo: Diane Edwardson, July 15, 2010. These might be native Pacific Blackberries, ripening near the trail cut-through to Adelbert. Watch out for those spikes! (Click on photo to enlarge.)

*UPDATE 8-3-11: A berry connoisseur neighbor says these are Boysenberries, not blackberries. There are 188 species of berries listed on Calflora, including several native and non-native species that look just like this plant. So the ID is not definite yet.
