Summer is spelled as ‘blackberries’ for me. I love blackberries. For starters, it is easy to eat (no peeling!). Plus the sweet and juicy flavour makes for a tasty treat. No wonder it’s a favourite among kids. But along with these immediate benefits, this delicious fruit has a lot more on offer.
Talk of skin, hair or overall health, this yummy fruit extends its benefits to all. Blackberries are available in plenty during mid-autumn. It is an aggregate fruit, composed of several smaller fruits known as drupes. It belongs to the Rosaceaefamily (1). The fruit is deep purple in colour with smooth, fragile skin. Thanks to the fruitfulness of blackberries, they have even found mention in the Bible and British folklore.
Still doubt the calibre of blackberries? Here is a post on blackberries’ benefits for skin, hair and health. But before I start listing out various benefits, here’s a detailed chart elucidating its nutritional value.
