Blackberry

The blackberry (Rubus allegheniensis) was designated the official state fruit of Kentucky in 2004. Blackberries are delicious raw and are also used in desserts, jams, seedless jellies and wine.

Blackberries (also called "bramble berry" or "bramble raspberry") are a widespread and well known group of several hundred species native throughout the temperate Northern hemisphere, usually with numerous (and very sharp) short curved spines on the plant shoots.
