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 (not true berries in the botanical sense) 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).
It is called bokbunja (hangul: 복분자; hanja: 覆盆子) in Korean and cha tian pao (插田泡) in Chinese.
