Wild blackberries are like the ones you buy, but better. Among the best-known berries in America, you can find them wherever you live. The toothed leaves are compound —divided into segments, called leaflets. Since the leaflets, like your fingers, originate from a point rather than a line, the leaves are called palmate-compound. Each leaf usually has 3-7 sharply-toothed leaflets.

Are these sometimes called Dewberries? I have picked a lot of these in the brigus / ocean pond area in the past month and they are delicious. The ones I found are ground level and run along in vines.

Dewberries are closely related to the blackberries. They are small trailing (rather than upright or high-arching) brambles with berries reminiscent of the raspberry, but are usually purple to black instead of red.

Thank you for the info! I have these growing nearby - I wasn't sure if they were indeed blackberries!
