Did you know, Blackberries are an edible fruit, commonly found in the UK from June until November, and they’re often seen growing in forests and hedgerows. Each individual blackberry, when ripe, is made up of 20-50 single seeds known as drupelets that are small, juice-filled and a deep purplish black. Technically, they are an ‘aggregate fruit’ rather than a berry. Blackberries are sweet and nutritious dark-blue berries that offer several health benefits. They are loaded with fibre, manganese, and vitamin C. They’re also one of the few fruits that are high in vitamin K, which plays an essential role in blood clotting and bone health.
