Blackberry or Rubus molluccanus of Rosaceae. Not too sure of sp.
though. Must check with local flora. Regards, Shrikant

Vernacular name : Nuccatte / Nukkate - (Probably the name is in coorg/Kodagu language)

When botanists identify this fruit as  black berry, locals question - the fruit  is  Red  why don't you call Red berry ?

Thanks a lot.

Regards
Raghu

It turns black/dark red (according to place, shade etc.) when it fully ripened, as we can see in the first picture.
