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.
