I have not noticed any fruits in this plant .. and yes the fruits are edible (local people consume)


This plant is Rubus ellipticus Smith of Rosaceae.


I have a question for … or any body that may know: 
In urban ethnobotany in vicinity of NYC immigrant women and Herbalists from established euopean descent or native groups use infusions of rubus spp as a uterine tonic esp in preganancy… 
MY QUESTION:
since this grows abundantly in the uttarachanchal , foot of the himalyas etc…. do local herbalists, old wives tales list this leaf for similar use?


I may not not know that, but growing very commonly in California is a species of Rubus which is commonly known as Himalayan blackberry commonly sold in stores as blackberry and favourite of Americans for its large nearly 2-2.5 cm size fruits, relished as much as strawberry. This was earlier named as Rubus procerus or R. fruticosus, believed to have been introduced from India. Recently it has been correctly identified to be an Armenian species R. armeniacus (syn: R. procerus auct (non Muell.) Focke and now also goes under the name of Armenian blackberry, but name himalayan blackberry sticks.
Incidently the R.fruticosus growing in Kashmir and some other parts of Himalayas is also a distinct species R. ulmifolius.

yes the himalayan blackberry is known in the northeastern states simply as black raspberry… starts as red and turns black as it ripens….quite sweet when ripest…   there are several patches where they grow naturally, we try to keep them a secret along our walking paths in the wilderness, so that we may occasionally enjoy a sweet snack if hungry on the trail…


And they were originally introduced in California to keep off the animals and intruders from orchards and farmland, usually used as fences because of their strong sharp prickles.

Rubus ellipticus Sm.
at Ooty on November 16, 2011


Nice pictures! We used to collect its fruits daily in summer in my hometown Karan Prayag (Chamoli). These are really delicious when ripe but the harvest was only after many scratches on skin; curved spines only to blame.


Thank you very much … for the appreciation and experiences.

Yes. The sight of this plant’s armed nature made me capture a few pictures. Just no escaping from getting scraped by those fierce spines !!

Yes, these images belong to Rubus ellipticus, but one of your above image shows purple coloured flowers (matured flower buds), usually corolla white; but one population showed purple corolla, an interesting!


Many thanks … for validating the ID.

Indeed my mistake in labeling that particular image as R. ellipticus. I will check and correct it in my flickr notes.

In my recent visit to Karan Prayag (Chamoli) I was able to enjoy fruits of this plant Rubus ellipticus (Rosaceae). It reminded the childhood days when collecting these fruits was a routine in every morning in summers.


Superb photography, …, along with nice details.


I think Rubus ellipticus and Pyracantha crenulata are the most preferred wild fruits of Rosaceae, especially in Himalayan Hills.

Discussing Names of Plants in India :: Gujarati name of Rubus ellipticus : 3 posts by 2 authors.
the name for Rubus ellipticus Sm. is “shunu mukram“.

This name is found mentioned in many sites, however seems quite challenging to find the name in native script through Gujarati lexicons. Perhaps some typo.
Please help; will be glad to get the name in native script.


Colloquially, raspberries are usually called as such in Gujarati, variously transliterated as રાઝબરી, રાસ્પબરી, રાસ્પબેરી etc. In fact, Gauriphal / ગૌરીફળ has been included in modern-day Gujarati lexicons to refer to some Rubus spp.
I’m clueless about this “shunu mukram”. Equally puzzling is Rubus moluccanus; in some web sites, the Gujarati (?) name of this species has been mentioned as “shumukan khasheba“! I doubt if these are the Gujarati names of these plants.


Thanks very much … for this clarification. Me too had a feeling that these words “shunu mukram” do not belong to Gujarati. Perhaps some words of foreign language mixed inadvertently, and must have got copy-pasted in several sites.

I am not sure whether this wild-growing high altitude plant is found distributed in Gujarat. I will therefore not put any name for Gujarati at present.
Thank you once again. This name was thoroughly intriguing!


I am happy to say that the mystery of this name “shunu mukram” is finally resolved! The correct name is Shumu-mukram or Shumu-mukhram in Kachari language in Assam. The reference is Flora of Assam, vol 2, by UN Kanjilal, PC Kanjilal and A Das, page 196. I am attaching the relevant portion. The reference is available for free download here:
https://archive.org/details/FloraOfAssam2
I had originally got this name from some other site (from which I used to get vernacular names in those days) – that site does not exist anymore. It must have been a mistake on the site, which I copied on FOI. I think that mistake got replicated on the web. I partially feel guilty of perpetuating the mistake. Now that FOI is accessed by so many people for information, it is much more important that the names that are put are correct. So, the names should be put after applying some wisdom, and not by blindly copying. In that respect … is doing a wonderful job. The amount of labor he has put in collecting vernacular names of plants is commendable!
I have corrected this mistake on FOI: http://www.flowersofindia.net/catalog/slides/Yellow%20Himalayan%20Raspberry.html
and will try to inform other sites to correct it too.

Thank you very much … for shedding light on this query, and for all the clarification and information. !!! Thanks for nice words too.
