Blackberry

Blackberries are not technically a berry, but rather an aggregate fruit produced byRubus fruticosus and a number of hybrids. The typically black fruit is prized for its juiciness and soft texture, and is used frequently in jams, desserts and wine. The fruits are also high in antioxidants, high in fiber and lower in calories than many other fruits, making them a popular and nutritious treat. Unripe blackberries are red in color, and honey produced from the blossoms of blackberry shrub is darker in color.
