I have to agree with Beth, that what you have are Black Raspberries. Even here in Virginia our Blackberries are still small & green with just a slight hint of rose coloring. It will be another month or so before they're ripe.

BarbL. - Black Raspberries are relatively small, soft, & button-like, & they mature relatively early in the season. Blackberries are larger, more elongated in shape, firmer, & mature later - late summer into early fall.

Raspberries pull off the "core" when you pick them. Blackberries keep the center intact. I remember this by the "p" in raspberry for "pull" the center out.
