Notes for Identification: From wikipedia: the european dewberry, rubus caesius, grows more upright like other brambles, but is frequently restricted to coastal communities, especially sand dune systems. Its fruits are a deep, almost black, purple and are coated with a thin layer or 'dew' of waxy droplets. Thus, they appear sky-blue (caesius is latin for pale blue). It is less sought after, because its fruits are small and retain a markedly tart taste even when fully ripe. Found on disturbed ground, grassland, scrub and sand-dunes, often on clayey or basic soils.  found growing from ontario, canada to new york and south throughout indiana
