Above: Salmonberry is a species of Rubus native to the west coast of North America from west central Alaska to California.  Salmonberries are found in moist forests and stream margins, especially in the coastal forests. They often form large thickets, and thrive in the open spaces under stands of Red Alder.  Salmonberries are edible and share the fruit structure of the raspberry, with the fruit pulling away from its receptacle.
