Cultivation & harvest
The ideal location for blackberries is sunny to partial shade and, at best, protected from the wind. Also for blackberries, the sunnier, the sweeter.
The riper the fruits when harvested, the sweeter they are. Blackberries are particularly well suited for jams and as a topping for gateaux.
Blackberries are ripe when the exterior of the fruit is plump and shiny. Blackberries are particularly sensitive and mould quickly, so they must be eaten quickly.
