      Tony, you are “oh-so-close.” This is Purple-flowering raspberry which has the scientific name of Rubus odoratus. I once had the opportunity to taste the berries and found they do have a mild flavor. (Field guides indicate the berries are “tasteless.”) I’d like to try a whole handful of these at one time to give them a real taste test.
