Where to pick good blackberries :
For jams or syrups, it is always better to choose wild blackberries than garden ones, they are much more tasty.
They grow on paths and forests’ edge.
When picking them stay away from lower berries, choose those at the top. Tastier and better for your back !!
Picking Time : end of August beginning of September
