Politics, Philosophy, Fruit
The same berry or very close variants seems to go by several other names more or less regionally across the US. I wish I could remember all of them, but can't remember any besides the name I learned stuffing my face with them while being cut and pierced by thorns--an association hard to unlearn. One option I know is a prevalent East/West thing that shows up on packaging and in product names. Marion Berry maybe? Black Raspberry might be another. Others I know I've heard but haven't seen written even on a mason jar. I'd try again to assemble a collection if anybody can contribute. Don't give me "Salmon Berries" or names for berries that don't look role. This is not color-blind casting.
No, no, no! Marionberries are some sort of hybrid, not at all wild.Black raspberries are something else altogether, more like red raspberries but a much better flavor, I've always thought. You can hardly find them any more. I'm not sure if these grow wild. Red raspberries do in some places.But blackberries are blackberries everywhere!
I know those aliases are out there. Berry certain indeed.
Just to show there is no limit to the lengths I'll go for an answer, here's Wikipedia: "Other names occasionally used include wild black raspberry, black caps..."and "In various parts of the United States, wild blackberries are sometimes called 'Black-caps', a term more commonly used for black raspberries, Rubus occidentalis."
