Dark and juicy, blackberries have an amazingly sweet taste

The blackberry, plump and bold

Blackberries are sweet yet tart berries that burst with a deep citrus-like flavour when you bite into them. 

Sweet and juicy BerryWorld blackberries are more than just a tasty treat; they're also full of beneficial nutrients and are particularly high in anthocyanins, a dark-coloured antioxidant phytochemical that gives blackberries their characteristic purple-black tone. 

Our blackberries add a gorgeous flavour, not to mention visual appeal, to all areas of cooking and baking.

BerryWorld blackberries can be found at the following select stores:

When buying blackberries, look for plump, deep purple berries. The colour should be dark and consistent and there should not be too many red druplets on the berries. A little juice in the punnet is harmless and will make for sweet and ripe berries. Blackberries are ready ripened when you buy them.

How to keep your blackberries fresh

Store blackberries in the fridge as soon as possible after purchase. Keep the punnet upright and handle carefully to avoid bruising.

It is important that blackberries are brought to room temperature before eating; this brings out the fullest flavours in the fruit.

Always wash your blackberries before you eat them. The best way to do this is to carefully place them into a colander, rinse under cold water and gently pat dry with kitchen towel.
