Wild blackberries

The best blackberries are the wild ones. In Oklahoma, the berries are picked in the weeks following the July 4th weekend.

Problems[edit]

When harvesting blackberries, watch out for chiggers (also known as berry bugs). These are small mites that can cause rashes and itchiness when they bite.[1] Spray DEET all over (if you don't mind using DEET), or use a suitable alternative, especially on the ankles, waist and cuffs.

Uses for blackberries[edit]
