Blackberry and Raspberry – Easy to Grow and Deliciously Enjoyable

If you are looking for an easy-to-grow fruit that is delicious and enjoyable, you should consider adding blackberries or raspberries to your garden. These fruits can be grown in many climates and are relatively easy to care for. Plus, the taste of a fresh blackberry or raspberry is hard to beat! And imagine the satisfaction you’ll feel after canning your first jar of blackberry jam or raspberry syrup, all made from your homegrown fruit.

And here’s an interesting fact about these much-beloved fruits — Did you know a single blackberry or raspberry isn’t a lone fruit but is made up of many smaller fruits or “drupelets”? Nevertheless, they’re fun additions and come in a variety of options.

Blackberry plants can be erect or trailing, and raspberry plants will need a post or wire system for support. There are many varieties of blackberries and raspberries, and some even come in thornless variants. Just always be sure to leave enough space when planting multiple plants so that you can easily pick ripe fruit.

When planting your new blackberry plants or raspberry plants, choose a location that receives at least six hours of sun and has well-drained soil. Mulching around blackberry and raspberry plants helps keep the roots cool and moist and also helps prevent weeds from competing for moisture and nutrients.

If you are looking for a fruit that is both easy to grow and delicious, blackberries or raspberries may be a perfect choice. So give them a try in your garden this year!
