Blackberries are characterized by their coloring, their unique composition and their flavor. Like raspberries, Blackberries are not actually a berry, rather an aggregate fruit with individual drupelets that are held together by very fine, nearly invisible hairs. When ripe, Blackberries have a deep inky sheen with purple highlights. They are succulent and soft, with a melting quality. Their flavoring is warmly sweet, slightly tart with earthy undertones.
Blackberries are available year-round with a peak season in summer.
Blackberries are a bramble fruit within the Rosaceae family along with strawberries and raspberries, and a member of the Rubus genus. There are hundreds of specific varieties of Blackberries. The name Blackberry is often used as a generic term that refers to a wide range of bush berries that are considered Blackberries. These include loganberries, boysenberries, Marionberries and ollalieberries. Anthocyanins are responsible for the dark purple pigmentation of Blackberries. In nature, the pigment is a natural attractor of the attention of animals. Animals eat the fruits and disperse the seeds, keeping the life cycle alive.
