I'm John from Iowa. I've made wine off and on since 1972. My winemaking hobby was ended when I got nasal polyps. I could not smell or taste. Now a miracle, "Dupixent " , a drug that came along gave me back ability to smell and taste. I make fruit wines from recipes, not worried about technical aspects and scientific equipment.

David. Thank you for asking!
Just yesterday I researched how to tell the difference between raspberry and blackberry plants. I know now!
I know of a place where both grow wild. I will make wines from each.

Black raspberries are hollow when you pull them off, and blackberries / blackcaps are solid and usually bigger. My bad for reading too fast, I thought you had black raspberries! Either way they are great… I’ve also made a great blackberry and rosemary jam… yum!
