Blackberries

Blackberries are characterized by their coloring, their unique composition and their flavor. Blackberries are not technically a berry, but rather an aggregate fruit of individual drupes held together by very fine, nearly invisible hairs. Blackberries do not have a hollow center, instead they have a solid, edible core. When ripe, Blackberries have a deep inky sheen with purple highlights. They are succulent, soft, and juicy. Their flavor is sweet, slightly tart, with earthy undertones.

Blackberries are a bramble fruit within the Rosaceae family. A member of the Rubus genus, there are hundreds of specific varieties of Blackberries. The name Blackberry is often used as a generic term that refers to a wide range of bush berries that are considered Blackberries.

Nutritional Value

Blackberries are a good source of vitamins A and C, iron, calcium and dietary fiber. Blackberries get their dark purple pigmentation from the phytonutrient anthocyanin, which also has antioxidant properties.
