From Our Farm . . .
Sizemore Farms’ central Florida location allows us to harvest our blackberries in late spring and early summer before other US growing regions. Our long, sunny spring days ripen our Florida blackberries on the vine so that we can get them on supermarket shelves sooner than anyone else.
. . . To Your Table
We ship our Florida Supreme blackberries to grocery stores across the United States from early May to late June. We are committed to shipping only to the finest retailers in order to ensure peak freshness and the highest quality berries for you.
When choosing blackberries in the supermarket, look for plump fruit with a deep blue-purple color. Blackberries should be uniform in size with no attached hulls.
To keep you berries fresh at home, do not wash them right away. Refrigerate them in their original container until just before eating.
Wait to wash blackberries until you’re ready to eat them. Rinse with cold water and allow them to reach room temperature before enjoying them as a snack or adding them to a delicious recipe.
Put Good In
Sizemore Farms’ Florida blackberries are more than just an early summertime treat. They are an excellent source of antioxidants, dietary fiber, and vitamins C and K. Blackberries are low in carbohydrates and have a low glycemic index.
Get Good Out
The rich nutrient content in these super fruits makes blackberries an important part of a healthy diet. These qualities promote heart and brain health.
