As the title says what is the difference between 覆盆子 and 树莓? It feels like 覆盆子 is more formal / "fancier" than 树莓? Or is it just traditional characters vs simplified?

1 Answer 1


Check wiki, basicly 覆盆子(Rubus idaeus) is one kind of 树莓(Raspberry), 树莓(Raspberry) also include 山莓 (Rubus corchorifolius), 牛叠肚 (Rubus crataegifolius) etc.

树莓英文为“Raspberry”也可以指覆盆子(Rubus idaeus)但是它只是其中一种,广义来讲还可指悬钩子属内的部分物种。
