Ive stumbled upon many many of these bushes surrounding a trail. Am I right to say that these are wild raspberries? Some have a tiny bug or two crawling on them. Am I okay to just wash these off and eat them? Can I collect these, would it be safe? It's on a trail surrounding a pond which is the towns water supply, so I do not think they are sprayed with anything. Thanks

I dug about a dozen wild ones out and have a nice berry patch now. I still pick the wild ones that are really nice also! They will bear for about a month then you will see black berries in mid july ripen! Soak them when you are ready to eat them other wise just store in ref. We just made a pie this past week and it was great!
