Winter flowering bramble

I require some help from any berry fiends that may be on here if possible please.

I will shortly be receiving a plant of a bramble type berry that apparently flowers here in the Australian mid winter and has ripe fruit around mid September, way earlier than most other berries down here. Actual location where plants are currently growing is a Melbourne suburb called Arthurs Seat. I have been told that the plant has true leaves rather than leaflets. Person currently growing ot has 30+ years experience growing plants down under and has never heard of anything similar.

Any pointers as to identity would be greatly appreciated.

OK, have found out some more about this plant. Turns out it is most likely Rubus moluccanus, native to the North East Indian states and to the coastal strip of Australia, from Queensland to Victoria. Was not expecting that, as most of our brambles are not worth even considering eating. Now very much looking forward to its arrival and tasting down the track.
