   PICKING BLACKBERRIES

 

Blackberries are fully ripe when their color has changed from red to completely black.

 

A Blackberry that is ripe will detach easily  from the cane

 

Harvesting berries when they are completely dry, and earlier in the day results in a longer shelf life. Berries that are wet from morning dew or rain will  likely to develop mold

Put picked berries into shallow containers to avoid crushing them

HANDLING YOUR BERRIES
AT HOME

Cool your berries as soon as possible. Keep them refrigerated until you are ready to use them. If you plan on freezing them, place them into a freezer bag or container first. 

 

Wash the berries before eating. 

 

Do not wash the berries until you are ready to use them.  Pour the berries into a colander and then rinse them with cold water. Remove any stems, leaves or damaged berries. Then enjoy!
