The blackberry (Rubus) belongs to the Rosaceae family, Rubus genus and Eubatus subgenus.

There are many species of blackberries, constituting an extremely diverse and complex group, varying their fruits in weight and size. The fruits are delicate and juicy, tasty and aromatic, presenting oblong and sometimes round shapes. The blackberries are composite fruits, made up of numerous small aggregate drupes, called drupelets, which involve the receptacle.

The blackberries grow in various types of soils, from sandy to loam, provided that the soils are well drained. Given the biodiversity of existing plants in the country, but particularly in Rubus, Portugal is one of the regions of Europe with the greatest diversity of species in this genus.
