Wineberries? Have you ever heard of them?
Not my normal style of picture, but I've been picking wine berries／イビガライチゴ (rubus phoenicolasius) this weekend. There are many growing behind where I live. Any good recipes? It is a native raspberry to Japan, Korea, and China. It is also an invasive species to the U.S. and U.K. • • #wineberry #wineberries #raspberries #redraspberries #japan #wildberry #wildberries #redberry #redberries #fresh #justpicked #ラズベリー #木苺 #japanesewineberry #raspberry
イビガライチゴ (ibigaraichigo // Latin: rubus phoenicolasius)
It is a raspberry that is native to Japan, Korea, and China. When it is fully ripe, it is a deep red like a red wine. After doing some online research, I saw that they are popular in the UK and eastern US. It is almost considered native in the eastern US.
Also from my research, I learned that the “black berries” I picked while growing up were not black berries. They were a type of raspberry that is black. I think wineberries have a similar taste to black raspberries.
From the berries that I picked, Joy made some muffins. Actually, the muffins turned out to be really good. I guess, it is a good thing that I picked so many that we froze a lot of the berries.
