  • Common Name: Bramble
  • Latin Name: Rubus spp., esp. Rubus fruticosus
  • Family Name: Rosaceae
New leaf growth and flowers are fine in moderation, but Bramble leaves do contain tannins and other astringent substances and some tortoises might find the taste unpalatable. Do not feed the fruit unless your tortoise is a fruit-eating species.   Flowers are usually white, but occasionally pink.  See also Blackberry and Raspberry.
