    Have several long single stalk (3 to 4') plants in the garden. Yesterday I noticed that they were getting ripe fruit on the end of the stalk. The fruit looked a lot like raspberries and is just now ripening. I originally (in the summer) thought they were weeds but let them grow to see what they were. Very little foliage on them. Sorry no pics yet.

    Any guesses?

    Wild Raspberries? Used to get them on the Olympic Peninsula. Guess I would need to see a picture.

    With a description like that you'll get no accurate answers...

    Salmonberry maybe?...

    ...take zee pichures - then we ansher!!!

    I'm thinking thimbleberries or black caps but it's getting pretty late for any of our native berries to just now be getting ripe. Could be a non-native that was introduced. Pictures will help.

    Looks just like a raspberry to me....

    Taste one silly!

    Poison only works when you ingest it, tasting is what will reveal the secret question...

    I think DH has it spot on. Red stalks, red berries, same leaves, same drooping, single long stalk.

    I'm going to have a look around more closely tomorrow and see if there are enough for some tarts.
