Red Raspberry

The red raspberry (Rubus idaeus) bush grows in thickets along the edges of wooded areas throughout North America. If you find some, you can easily domesticate it. Just dig up a small part of the bush with the root and plant it along a fence or towards the edge of a garden area. In the summer, the red, prickly vines become covered with delicious berries, beloved by birds, small animals and humans alike.
