Rubus coreanus (syn. Rubus tokkura; also called Korean black raspberry) is a species of raspberry native to Korea, Japan, and China. It produces edible berries that are fermented into bokbunja ju, a Korean fruit wine (although the majority of fruit commercially grown for producing this drink are actually Rubus occidentalis, native to North America). The berry is believed to have aphrodisiac qualities.
It is called bokbunja (hangul: 복분자; hanja: 覆盆子) in Korean and cha tian pao (插田泡) in Chinese.
