Blackberry Growing Areas and Availability Calendar

 

Blackberries are available year round, with a majority of the availability coming out of Mexico; rainy seasons being the only time they become unavailable. As more and more local deals come on as well, most recently grown commercially in the Southeast and Atlantic, their consumption domestically should continue to grow. 


Nutrition and Storage

Blackberries are a delicate berry and very perishable, so they should be handled with care and consumed shortly after receiving. For best results, store in the fridge & keep at 32-36°F, and at 90-98% relative humidity. Wash right before eating.
