Blackberries

Driscoll’s is a major grower of berries and they are known for having quality Blackberries with nice flavor for much of the year sold in their yellow label packs. Here in April and May though, Driscoll’s is shipping some of their proprietary variety Blackberries that are bred for big size, dark color, plump texture and impressive sweetness. This special fruit is being sold as Driscoll’s “Season’s Finest” Blackberries in packs with a purple label. I’ve been snacking on a pack a day this week! The berries are so sweet and free from the tanginess typical in even peak seasons fruit. I hope you find these and try them for yourself.

Fresh Blackberry consumption continues to grow in the US thanks to better availability, their health properties of this berry and the fruit smoothie boom.

Blackberry Tips

  • Select Blackberries that are free from wet, leaking or moldy spots in the pack.
  • Store them in the fridge and try to use them within a few days of purchase to get the most out of your purchase. Blackberries are delicate and the sweetest ripest soft berries don’t last long.
  • Always rinse your Blackberries just before use.
