Rubus parvifolius (Native Raspberry) is a useful bush food. It is both a bramble growing to 1 metre high that can be used to create an informal fence barrier and a fruiting plant with good yields of sweet to slightly acidic tasting raspberries. Native Raspberry enjoys full sun and like soils that are moist but have good drainage. It will handle drier soils once established but it will still need to be watered during long dry periods. Lizards, birds and small mammals all use Native Raspberry for habitat so if you have the weedy Blackberry, seek and destroy and then replace it with a Native Raspberry. You can also plant Native Raspberry in a large pot so you can enjoy its fruit. Native Raspberry also occurs in Japan, China and Vietnam.
