The sweet, juicy, fragrant berries have always been a favourite of the Secwepemc people, especially children. Long ago, people dried them, and more recently, they put them in the freezer and made them into jam and jelly. Wild raspberries are not as common as they used to be, in part due to overgrazing by cattle. Grow at low to sub alpine elevations; in moist habitats, clearings, logged areas, fields. Can tolerate some shade.
