Rubus crataegifolius

Rubus crataegifolius (Korean Raspberry) is a species of raspberry which grows wild in northeastern China, Japan, Korea, and the Ussuri region of the Russian Far East.[1]

It is a shrub growing to 1-2 m (rarely 3 m) tall. The leaves are 5–12 cm long and 5–8 cm broad, palmately lobed with three or five lobes, and a serrated margin. The flowers are 1–1.5 cm diameter, with five white petals. The fruit is an aggregate fruit 1 cm diameter, made up of numerous drupelets. The species grows on forest margins and mountain slopes, in areas with moist and well-drained soil.[1]

Its fruit is used for food and also for medicinal purposes, and the plant is sometimes cultivated; the cultivar 'Jingu Jengal' has been selected for its large fruit.[2] The roots have been found to contain substances with anti-inflammatory effects in mice.[3]
