Tips for success growing Raspberries, Blackberries and Currants

Tips for growing Raspberries, Blackberries and Currants:

  • Remove old drying canes after harvest to keep raspberries thriving.
  • Pinch back tips of new growth at 3-4 feet to encourage branching.
  • Once fruit has formed, consider netting your plants to save your crops from the birds.

Hopefully if you decide to give growing Raspberries, Blackberries and Currants in your garden you will have success too. I highly suggest purchasing thorn less blackberries though!

My favorite Blackberry Recipes include blackberry oatmeal and blackberry cherry smoothie.

  1. Don’t wash berries before packing them. They have a natural preservative that helps keep them fresh-like while frozen. Pack berries in amounts that you might use them for recipes. I like to pack using 2 cups and laying the packs flat so that when I thaw them, they aren’t in a huge clump, which takes longer to thaw and the outer berries get mushy. Freeze berries as soon as you can. Sitting in large bowls, after picking causes them to begin to create a heat that breaks them down and at room temp will begin to mold.

  2. If you freeze them on a cookie sheet first, then put them in the bag, you can use as many or as few as you want. Don’t wash until you use them.
