Rubus caesius is similar to and often confused with forms of Rubus fruticosus.It is a small shrub growing up to 2 m tall with biennial stems which die after fruiting in their second year. It sends out long runners which root at the tip to form new plants. The stems are bluish-grey and sometimes prickly. The alternate leaves are hairy above and below. They are stalked and the leaf blades are palmate in shape, either consisting of three oval leaflets with serrated margins and acute points or just being three-lobed. The inflorescence is a loose cluster of several white flowers about 2.5 cm in diameter. The calyx has five sepals and the corolla is composed of five spreading petals with finely toothed margins. There is a boss of stamens in the centre and there are several pistils. The fruit is an aggregate of several black, fleshy drupes with a bluish waxy bloom.

The fruits are orange and composed of large segments. Maturation takes place in the middle of summer. They are about 1.5 cm in diameter. The taste is pleasantly sweet and sour, reminiscent of pineapple. In the Netherlands, for this, it is also called Pineapple Raspberry.

    MINERAL SALTS – magnesium, sodium, phosphorus, potassium, magnesium, zinc, iron, manganese, copper and calcium.
    KETONE – stimulates the production of adiponectin, a hormone that acts on the metabolism and causes the body to burn fat for energy.

It is a plant that fits particularly well on all types of terrain, provided it is well drained, and thanks to its characteristics it is also suited to partial shade.
