This is the time of year when I see a lot of confusion on social media and at farmers markets regarding red raspberries and wineberries.

Wineberries are of the same genus as raspberries and blackberries. They are native to China, Japan, and Korea. The species was introduced to North America for its potential in breeding hybrid raspberries. It escaped cultivation and has become naturalized in parts of the United States, primarily the Appalachian Mountains, which includes our area.
