We grow several varieties of plump blackberries in both Oregon and Mexico, providing a year-round supply. With its fertile, well-drained soil, spring rain and warm summer days with cool evenings, Oregon’s Willamette Valley is known for its extraordinary blackberries. Consumers love our blackberries, not only for their wonderful flavor, but also for their many health benefits1.

PACKAGING

Hurst’s blackberries are sold primarily in 5.6 oz. clamshell containers, which travel 12 to a flat. The clear clamshell design protects the berries and allows customers to see the fruit easily.

 

HEALTH

Hurst’s blackberries are high in fiber and vitamin C and a good source of folate, potassium and other important minerals. They are cholesterol free, and naturally low in fat and sodium.

DISPLAY & HANDLING

Creating a “berry patch” display with Hurst’s blackberries and other berries can encourage impulse buying. Blackberries are very perishable. For optimal shelf life, they should be stored and displayed in dry refrigeration at 32° to 34°. They should not be damp because moisture speeds the rate of decay. Shelf life is approximately one week after picking, or three to five days after they reach your market.
