I found some berries that look like golden raspberries, have 3 lobe leaves that look like cloudberries. What are they? And are they safe to eat?

@rpemberton,
First of all, don't eat ANY wild plants unless they are POSITIVELY identified. There are some nasty things out there.

That having been said, these do look like a form or raspberry. I'll have to research a little to give you an opinion.

@rosborne979,
Either it is a cultivar of golden raspberries or it's a Rubus Ellipticus.

Well I spent a couple hours researching for possible matches to poisonous berries and didn't find anything that looked remotely similar. I did that test to check if it is poisonous. Nothing happened. And as far as I can tell all berries in the raspberry family aren't poisonous. But I still have no idea what kind they are. They were planted outside of a storage facility as decoration. Could it maybe be an undocumented hybrid?

@rpemberton,
those leaves don't look quite right - very close to cloudberry but not quite

what form does the plant take?

@ehBeth,
A Prostrate shrub? I don't know much about plants. It is rather low to the ground and branches off from a centeral root base. I guess just like a regular woody shrub, but more flat.
