The Salmonberry is a foraged fruit found on bushes in Stardew Valley during Salmonberry Season (Spring 15-18). It won't be found in the wild outside those days. It can be found at any time (randomly) in the Farm Cave if the fruit bat option is chosen.
At Foraging Skill Level 4, two berries will be harvested from each bush instead of one. At Foraging Skill Level 8, three berries will be harvested from each bush. If Foraging Skill is temporarily increased to 12 or 13 by consuming food, then 4 berries will be harvested from each bush. However, Salmonberries themselves give no foraging experience when harvested.
Salmonberry has the lowest sell value of any foraged item, making it one of the few fruits that is worth more as a Jelly than a Wine. It can also make them more useful for gifting or eating than for selling.
Salmonberries shaken from bushes during Salmonberry Season will always be regular quality, unless the Botanist Profession is chosen, in which case they will always be iridium quality. Salmonberries found in The Farm Cave can be normal, silver, or gold quality unless the Botanist Profession is chosen, in which case they will always be iridium quality.

While the game suggests gathering Salmonberries to get extra cash, its low sell value also makes it a cheap source of energy and health when eaten, and an inexpensive gift to those who like it. Spending the effort to gather them in quantity during their 4-day season can be especially valuable in year 1, when energy resources and gift options alike are scarce. Attention to raising your Foraging level to 4 in the first two weeks (difficult but possible) can pay off double in giving you extra energy for early tasks after that. This approach can yield a total harvest of over 400 salmonberries in the first season (over 10,000 supplemental energy).
