Blackberry Care & Harvesting (page 2 of 2)
by National Gardening Association Editors
Berries will ripen over a period of several weeks and should be harvested every 2 to 4 days. Pick berries in the cool of early morning and avoid bruising them. Refrigerate the berries immediately; they'll keep for 4 to 5 days at 35° F if picked when warm, berries don't keep as long.
