Blackberries grow on bushes with thorns. They are purple-black in color and are usually available in the summer. If the hulls are still attached, the berries were picked too soon and they will be very tart. Blackberries contain salicylate, the substance found in aspirin, and are among the top ten antioxidant foods.
