Fruit of the sea­son

Landscape (UK) - - Land Scape -

The dark jew­els of ripe black­ber­ries be­gin to pop­u­late hedgerows from late sum­mer on­wards and at the be­gin­ning of Septem­ber are usu­ally at their peak. The soft yield­ing fruit, speck­led with tiny seeds, is of­ten gath­ered on a walk, eaten on the go or dropped into tubs to be taken home and used in a crum­ble or pie. Their earthy flavour is en­hanced by a sweet tang. Pick­ing them is of­ten a fam­ily tra­di­tion en­joyed as au­tumn ar­rives.
