How to: grow blackberries
Problem Solver: January 30, 2016.
This week on the Big Backyard Jane Edmanson spoke to Rob Pelletier from Heritage Fruit Trees.
Question: Why do some little segments with the fruit stay white and don’t ripen?
Answer: White segments can be caused by sunburn which usually affects several segments on the north side of the fruit, common on raspberries, while single white segments could be the result of insect damage. The fruit is generally OK to eat and ideal for jam and syrup.
