Armenia. One of the cultivated blackberry species. Naturalized in some western European countries. Despite its common name, it does not come from the Himalayas. There is in any case some confusion about the name, which has been attributed to other Rubus species, so there is uncertainty about the identity about the R. armeniacus (or R. bifrons) naturalized in North America
