Wild Raspberries

aka: Mauritius raspberry, roseleaf raspberry, thimbleberry, roseleaf bramble, West Indian raspberry, ola'a

Rubus Rosifolius
Family: ROSACEAE

Wild Raspberry[1] is another "weed" which grows profusely on our land and we have heard tales of it "taking over" underutilised pasture very rapidly. The plant is listed by PIER (Pacific Island Ecosystems at Risk) as a plant species which is “threatening Pacific island ecosystems”.

However our experience is that after about 5 years in an area the plants seem to have accomplished what they came to do and they become sparse and weak, making way for other species to flourish.

We enjoy early mornings gathering their fruit for breakfast. What a delight to enjoy these natural abundant nutritional gifts from Nature.

Our Wild Raspberry is clearly related to the better-known and sweeter raspberry (Rubus idaeus) which can be found in season in fruiterers.
