|First Blackberries. Nikon D7000|
The very first of the blackberries was just about ripe today. The trade-off for the bramble being thornless and the fruits being large is that if they are not completely ripe, they are very sharp indeed.
This one was borderline with a hint of sweetness; I just could not wait!
There are lots of red and green ones on the plant too; fingers crossed they will have ripened before Christmas.
