  1. salmonberry

    A salmonberry is a type of fruit belonging to the rose family, mainly found in North America. It is particularly common in the west coast region, from Alaska to California. It's named due to its similarity in color and size to salmon eggs. The plant itself can grow up to 1-4 meters tall, and flowers with pink and purple petals. The fruit is edible and is often used in cooking and baking.


  1. Salmonberry

    Rubus spectabilis is a species of Rubus native to the west coast of North America from west central Alaska to California. It is a shrub growing to 1–4 m tall, with perennial, not biennial woody stems. The leaves are trifoliate, 7–22 cm long, the terminal leaflet larger than the two side leaflets. The leaf margins are toothed. The flowers are 2–3 cm diameter, with five purple petals; they are produced from early spring to early summer. The fruit matures in late summer to early autumn, and resembles a large yellow to orange-red raspberry 1.5–2 cm long with many drupelets. In the Pacific Northwest of North America the berries can ripen from mid-June to late-July. Salmonberries are found in moist forests and stream margins, especially in the coastal forests. They often form large thickets, and thrive in the open spaces under stands of red alder. In Kodiak, Alaska, orange salmonberries are often referred to as "Russian berries". Because the berries are found in abundance there and look a lot like raspberries, one of the islands in the Kodiak archipelago is named Raspberry Island. Plain salmonberries are found as far north as Kivalina, Alaska.
