Wineberries

The wineberries are ripe. They are very tasty.

Never saw any.

Do you keep a patch of them or are you finding them "wild" ??

They grow wild. I don't know if they grow in all areas of PA, but I've found them in Centre and Clinton Counties.

I've also found them further south in Tuscarora State Forest in Juniata Cty. There were pretty good numbers there.

Probably many people have seen them, but just didn't know what they are called.

If you Google "wineberries" and click Images, you will see photos of them. Probably you have seen them somewhere.

They look kind of similar to rasberries, but the color is different.

The taste is tangier than rasberries, a combination of tart and sweet.

They ripen after the rasberries are over.

OK. I wondered...……..

I'm thinking that they are actually an invasive species...……. I don't know that I've seen them around my part of 2D. But there's one place I wanna look. What general TYPE of area do you most commonly find them ?? Roadside ?? Streamside ?? Early successional ??? Mature forest ??

"Edge habitat." Any place where the woods meets a more open area.

I've found a lot along gravel forest roads. Also where grassy areas meet the woods.

Never heard of them before. Googled them, don’t remember ever seeing them, and I spend a lot of time in Centre and Clinton Counties. Gonna have to look a little closer and pay more attention.
