The Instacart guide to blackberries


About blackberries

Modern commercial cultivation of blackberries started in 1880 in Santa Cruz, California. A judge named James Harvey Logan crossed a wild raspberry with a wild blackberry to create the loganberry. Throughout the early 20th century, cultivators cross-pollinated various species of wild blackberries to create the types of blackberry found in supermarkets and farmer's markets today. Common types of hybrid blackberries include loganberries, marionberries, and ollaliberries.

Blackberries are tasty, sweet, and versatile. You can eat them fresh, put them in pies, add them to jams, or even make blackberry wine with them. They're an edible fruit from the Rubus Genus and are a member of the Rosaceae family. Also found in the Rosaceae family are stone fruits such as apples, pears, cherries, strawberries, and peaches. Technically, blackberries aren't a true berry but aggregate small fruits with internal seeds called drupelets.

The blackberry plant flowers in the early summer, and by late summer, the blackberries ripen. They start out green in color, and as they mature, they turn a deep purple color. The darker the fruit, the riper and sweeter it is. Similar to its cousin, the raspberry, blackberries grow on thorny branches, sometimes called brambles or canes. Blackberry plants are perennial, producing fruit one to two times per growing season, which takes place between June and September.

In the wild, about 350 species of blackberries exist, and they can be found in temperate climates around the world. The countries of Mexico and Chile supply most of the United States and Europe with blackberries, and the state of Oregon grows the most blackberries within the U.S.
