Black raspberry is also called thimbleberry, black caps or scotch cap. Its binomial name is Rubus occidentalis and it is home to eastern North America. Close relations of this juicy, jet black bramble include blueberry and the American red raspberry, though the taste of the blackberry differs from both.
Black raspberries are often mistaken for blackberries but these are two very different species. Black raspberries are innately high in anthocyanins. For this reason, they are used as a dye. More importantly, they are considered by many people to have anti -cancer properties.
In addition, raspberries are a source of vitamin C, manganese and dietary fiber. The fruit also contain high amounts of vitamin B, folic acid, magnesium, copper and iron. They work as a cure against inflammation, pain, cardiovascular diseases, diabetes and allergies along with age based cognitive decline and loss of eyesight.
