Answer: Raspberries and blackberries should be okay for your area, but these "brambles" can be invasive and some have nasty thorns, so determine if you have room to allow them to spread. Yes, they take full sun. I've tried growing blueberries even farther north than you are, with limited success because of the extreme cold, but they might perform better where you are. I'm going to refer you to U of MN Hennepin County Cooperative Extension. They will have plant lists, including varieties that do well in your specific area. They are at 1525 Glenwood Avenue, Minneapolis, 612-374-8417. They probably have this info on their website also. Good luck!
