Picking Tips

  • When fully ripe, blackberries will separate from the plant with only a small tug. If you have to pull at all, leave it to ripen.
  • Ripe blackberries will be dark purple-black. Even the inner part, the receptacle, should be a shade of purple and not white.
  • Don’t fill containers too full. The berries are delicate and will crush easily, especially on a hot summer day.  If you need more containers, we’re happy to supply them!
