Full Answer

Pictures do not always show the precise shape or color, but most berry plants have very distinctive leaves. The U.S./Canadian border has the largest selection of wild berries, due to the amount of snow that falls in that area every year. The most popular berries are blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, cranberries and strawberries, which can all be found in most local grocery stores.

  • Q:

    Why do leaves change color in the fall?

    A:

    When the abscission layer of a plant grows, it cuts off the circulation of nutrients, sugar and water to the leaves, which causes the chlorophyll that gives the plant its green color to disintegrate and makes carotene shine through. The result is the yellow-colored leaves that are found on maple and other trees, such as birch and aspen, in the fall.
