2020 Herb of The Year
The blackberry, or Bramble, growing in every English hedge -row.is too well known to need description. Its blossoms, as well as its fruits, both green and ripe, may be seen on the bush: at the same time, somewhat unusual feature, not often met with in other plants. Blackberries are perennial plant which typically bear biennial stems from the perennial root system.
Blackberry leaves are food for certain caterpillars; some grazing mammals, especially deer, are also very fond of the leaves. Blackberry fruits are red before they are ripe, leading to an old expression that "blackberries are red when they're green". Blackberries, is left to grow wild, can become invasive. Sending down roots from branches that touch the ground, and sending up suckers from the roots.The flowers are produced in late spring and early summer on short racemes on the tips of the flowering laterals. Each flower is about 2 -3 cm in diameter with five white or pale pink petals.
The soft fruit is popular for use in desserts, jams, seedless jelly, and wine. Blackberry vinegar is a wholesome drink that is easily made. It also can have a advantage as a fine cordial for a feverish cold.
