Also called Marion berries, Blackberries are extremely perishable and should be handled with care. Good-quality berries will be fairly firm and clean with good color. Keep blackberries dry and cool in your refrigerator. Do not wash until you are ready to use them.
Avoid berries that still have their caps (stems) attached or that are green or multi-colored (red or green). These berries are not ripe and will not develop full flavor. Overripe berries will be soft, dull-colored and may leak juice.
Blackberries are available from California form May to October. Oregon and Washington berries are available from late July to late August.
