The Bramble, also called the Blackberry, yeilds a delicious
fruit which old folklore tells us not to eat after
September 29th, Michealmas. If you do then the
Devil will spit on them! However there is an insect,
the flesh-fly, which does put a saliva-like fluid onto the fruit
which it later sucks up along with the juice of the fruit.
