Red Car Property: Native Blackberries?*

Photo: Diane Edwardson, June 30, 2011.  Native Pacific Blackberries are starting to ripen near the Adelbert All-Weather Lounge on the Red Car Property.  (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.
