Blackberries are one of the more popular fruits in the United States at least. Most of us have tried them and know how tasty they are… but what do we really know about their health benefits?
The blackberry is not a true berry but is actually more closely related to the plum. It’s fruit is made of a small bunch of drupelets. Over 300 species exist. Historically blackberries have been used in jelly, jam, desserts and wine. The flowers make lots of nectar, so they are good honey flowers.
