Red Seedless Blackberries are Irresistable for your Landscape Design
Red Seedless Blackberries, I have one word to say…yum! Who doesn’t like fruit? We all do. We all love to go out for breakfast or have a good home cooked meal with hot steamy biscuits slathered in jelly. Whether your preference is grape, apple, blackberry or raspberry, they all are good.
Blackberries come in all shapes, sizes and kinds most people prefer seedless ones. Although the red blackberries do not look like the traditional black ones that many of us are used to they often go mistaken for some other kind of fruit. It isn’t often that we see red blackberries many presume the name itself means they are black.
Blackberries are often eaten yet many hate to grow them because they can be messy. I know where we live my father has had blackberry vines for many years, and I always hated to pick them cause of the mess they would leave on you, some relate it to picking tobacco because of the mess you are left with.
Using Fresh Blackberries from your Garden
Many others though would seem to disagree because they love the fruit so much that they don’t care about the mess they just like the taste. Blackberries can be used for many things such as jams, jellies, pies, and preserves. It doesn’t matter if they are red or black they all seem to taste the same.
I know in my household, my kids and husband love to wake up in the morning and pop some toast in the toaster, add some blackberry jam and that’s their breakfast. My family says that blackberry jam is hard to beat and they love it!
There are so many things to do with blackberries that the ideas and choices are endless. Blackberries are fairly easy to grow, they prefer full sun, and once they obtain a sturdy root system it is hard to get rid of them. Blackberries are wanderers and do need a vine or stake to climb on.
Blackberries can give one fresh berry for many years to come. I know a family friend of ours has grown luscious blackberries in her yard for many years, always sharing with us when they were in full bloom, this past fall she decided she wanted to pair down a little bit so she dug up some of the bushes and gave them to us and we have hard to grow clay soil, but in no time our plants were thriving and in full bloom now allowing us to enjoy blackberries from our yard.
