When choosing blackberries, look for deep, evenly colored berries with a nice sheen. The berries should be plump, dry and free of dents or bruises. Blackberries range in color from deep blue/purple to deep purple/black. Blackberries are often two-tone in color, which is perfectly natural and does not affect ripeness.

For best results, Driscoll’s recommends that you refrigerate your blackberries and keep them dry in storage. Blackberries, like their bush-berry cousin, the raspberry, are especially fragile. It’s important to handle them gently when rinsing. Berries need to be rinsed just before use.

If you plan to freeze your blackberries for jams and jellies, Driscoll’s recommends that you wash your berries carefully in cold water and pack them into freezable containers.
