Black caps or black raspberries (Rubus leucodermis) are a rare and delightful treat around here. Okay, so they’re not rare botanically, but I don’t come across them very often, and I’m a big fan.
The dark berries ripen over a period of a couple weeks, so with just one plant, we’ll never have enough at one time to “do” anything with them other than eat them fresh off the cane. We just got our first tastes in the last few days. They’re smaller than a raspberry but sweet and tangy. They are rather seedy, so the birds love them, too.
