The fruit of the prickly bramble bush, called in England the brambleberry. The plant is of the same family as the raspberry. It grows all over Europe and Asia, and is abundant in North America. In the United States are the high-bush and low-bush blackberries, and the creeping dewberry, all growing wild. There are also several cultivated varieties, bearing larger and finer berries. The fruit is eaten for dessert, made into jelly, jam, and preserves, and wine and brandy are made from it.
