Blackberries, developing in color from dark red to black, are high in antioxidants and other health-promoting nutrients and compounds. The specific content of blackberries, including acid level, varies by type.
Less Acidic
Thornless cultivars produce sweeter fruit than the original evergreen blackberry. 'Chester' and 'Hull' are two thornless cultivars with good fruit production and a sweet flavor. Boysenberry is not extremely acidic, but offers a sweet-tart flavor.
More Acidic
Loganberries are juicy, but very acidic. Tayberry blackberries also produce acidic fruit, though not as much so as the loganberry.
Uses
Less acidic-tasting blackberries taste best fresh, while others work well frozen or made in to preserves. Thornless cultivars produce the sweetest berries, with boysenberries and Cherokee blackberries also offering an excellent fresh taste.
