Blackberries are best consumed as quickly as possible after purchasing or harvesting them. They remain fresh for 1 to 2 days if refrigerated. You can prevent the fruits from bruising by spreading them across a larger surface area. You can also freeze wild blackberries, but those are only suitable as part of a recipe. Once defrosted, they will have lost part of their shape and colour.

Quality and ripeness

Blackberries are sensitive fruits, bruises can quickly lead to mould. Keep this in mind when buying the fruit.

  • A blackberry has a conical shape and is an aggregate fruit.
  • The colour varies between purple and black.
  • A ripe blackberry is very juicy and has a sweet taste.

Use

Do not wash the blackberries under a flowing tap but use a colander to move them in cold water instead. Ice-cold water helps the wild blackberries stay nice and firm. Remove the calyx only after rinsing the strawberries. This prevents them from absorbing too much water while being rinsed which would also cause a watery taste. Carefully damp them with paper towels or a kitchen towel.

Blackberries are delicious on their own. They can also be enjoyed as breakfast with yoghurt or cream cheese and muesli. Blackberries have a refreshing taste which makes them a popular ingredient for crumbles and muffins. They are a delicious ingredient for a chocolate fondue or a refreshing salad. Don't forget to try the original Gin& Tonic with blackberry and lime; guaranteed success!

Types and varieties

During the past years, blackberries have gained in popularity both among growers and consumers. This is due to the introduction of the Loch Ness variety, which is known for its sweet taste, large size and much longer shelf-life. Other varieties include the Chester, Tupi and Loch Tay.
