When and How to Pick

The best time to pick berries is either in the morning or evening when the sun is setting. This is so the sun does not soften the berries so they are easier to pick. When picking the berries, use both hands. One hand will be used to hold the branch while the other takes the berry. Pick only fully ripe berries and keep the stems on the fruit.
