I was just wondering what this fruit was. It is growing around Dundrum Town Centre but I'm not sure what it is. It is a kind of creeper but looks like a raspberry. Is it edible??

Can anyone clarify or has anyone seen this growing on the Bypass side of the shopping centre?

Rubus Tricolour, a rampant groundcover.
Been enjoying the fruits of it from my own garden mixed in with icecream over the last few evenings.

Also try putting some of the fruits in a jug and just covering them with white wine vinegar. Three days later, you'll have the basis of wonderful dressings. I did that with my leftover Tayberries. It even works on chips!.

Thanks James. It does look like a prolific ground coverer alright. Might be useful. This should be used more I reckon, a ground cover that also gives back.

Cheers TippBen, i might give that a go sometime.

it is a good ground cover if that is what you want from it, It will smother everything else good for large commercial areas only " Penny landscaping" cheap and cheerful I wouldnt use it in a small garden as it will be a full time job keeping it in check.
