Blackberry Harvesting Information
Fruit is usually ripe in late June through July. Gather edible fruit when ripe, can be frozen or canned for later use. Gather leaves and roots of young (first year) cane, dry for later herbal use. Some berries are too tart for most people to enjoy (especially cranberries and lingonberries). Fresh cranberries can be used in recipes, although youll probably have to add some sugar.
