They enjoy moist soil and grow near and within wooded areas. I have seen it growing naturally in some local woods but not very often. While the structure resembles those of carnivorous plants, the wineberry plant does not get nutrients from insects caught in the sap: the sticky mucilage contains no digestive enzymes, surrounding tissues cannot absorb nutrients, and there are no protein-storage tissues. The species was introduced to Europe and North … Mulberry trees also have a resistance against the ill effects of air pollution.  Other plants that may be mistaken as wineberries include red raspberry, black raspberry, and blackberry, all of which are edible. , As a fruit develops, it is surrounded by a protective calyx covered in hairs that exude tiny drops of sticky fluid. grow on vines, but some trees bear fruits that look like raspberries. Ripening occurs from early summer. The fruit is orange or red, about 1 cm diameter, edible, produced in summer or early autumn; in botanical terminology, it is not a berry at all, but an aggregate fruit of numerous drupelets around a central core.  They are edible, with no poisonous look-a-likes in North America. For example, mulberry trees are either male or female, so if you don’t want a fruit-bearing tree, you can plant a male tree. Raspberries are the only bramble berry type that pulls free of the core; the center will remain hollow. Sweet and tart with a raspberry-like flavor, wineberries are used similarly to raspberries to make pastries, such as pie or other sweet treats. , The plant's leaves and stems/branches are covered in spines. These "raspberry trees" grow best when you plant them in full sun, but they also tolerate part shade. , The flowers are produced in late spring on short, very bristly racemes on the tips of these side shoots, each flower 6–10 mm diameter with five purplish red to pink petals and a bristly calyx. Mulberry trees produce berries that look like raspberries or blackberries because they can be reddish to dark purple. Although their appearance is similar to raspberries, the flavor of these edible tree fruits falls short.  Wineberries can be found in many habitats, such as forest, fields, stream banks, and wetland edges, as well as open woods. Trees with Berries That Stain the Pavement.  Wineberries are a host to several viruses, such as raspberry yellow spot that can affect native species of raspberry. Raspberries grow in red, yellow, purple and black varieties with red raspberry varieties being the most common.  They are common along the edges of fields and roadsides, and still are used as breeding stock for raspberry cultivars. Although these trees bear edible fruits, they do create messes when the berries drop. , Wineberry vine growth may be controlled variously, such as by biological mechanisms increasing susceptibility to diseases, or mechanical effects by digging, excavating or repeatedly cutting back the plant until it dies. True raspberries (Rubrus spp.) , In addition to seed propagation, new plants are formed from the tips of existing canes touching the ground. Unlike blackberries, dewberries and other types of bramble berries, picked ripe raspberries do not contain the core. They have both male and female flowers on the same tree, so only one tree is needed to produce fruit.  The canes have red glandular hairs. , The species was introduced to Europe and North America as an ornamental plant and for its potential in breeding hybrid raspberries. Rubus phoenicolasius Scientific classification Kingdom: Plantae: Angiosperms: Eudicots: Rosids Order: Rosales Family: Rosaceae Genus: Rubus Subgenus: Idaeobatus Species: R. phoenicolasius Binomial name Rubus phoenicolasius Maxim 1872 Rubus phoenicolasius is an Asian species of raspberry in the rose family, native to China, Japan, and Korea. Mulberry trees produce berries that look like raspberries or blackberries because they can be reddish to dark purple. Although the berries are edible, their taste is described as “mealy” by the Clemson Cooperative Extension. , The species is a perennial plant which bears biennial stems ("canes") from the perennial root system.
