Compound berry bush identification help #333746

Asked June 18, 2016, 2:03 PM EDT

I live in Silverton and near my home is forest and open meadow. In the meadow are a few bushes with compound berries. I have been online trying to identify, with no luck. I want to know if they are edible. Picture attached. Thanks for help. Dorthy Nielsen

This looks like Evergreen Blackberry, Rubus laciniatus. Info on this species is in the link to the OSU Extension publication below. Feel free to write with questions.
