Wild Mountain Blackberries
The mystique of the little Wild Mountain Blackberry began over 150 years ago, when Pacific Northwest pioneers first began picking these Pacific Northwest native, trailing vine wild berries. Quickly, they discovered that the tiny berries possessed a unique tartness and sweet flavor unsurpassed by any other. By the turn of this century, everyone from farmers to city folk prized little wild mountain blackberries as the crown jewels. One taste of our Wild Harvest little Wild Mountain Blackberry Preserves, or wild blackberry pie and you'll see why the late internationally renowned chef and cookbook author, James Beard, was drawn to the unique character and 'brier' of these berries. He considered them the most prized treasure of all the wild land berries.
The scientific name given to little wild mountain blackberries is Rubus ursinus. Other common names include Pacific Trailing Blackberry and Northwest Dewberry. When we picked them as kids, they were simply 'little wild blackberries.' No matter what you call them, little Wild Mountain Blackberries, the only blackberry native to the Pacific Northwest, are utterly delicious. The season for little, wild mountain blackberries varies with weather conditions, mountain location and elevation.
