Boysenberries peaking already

Sadly, we are on the downhill slope. The trick to picking them is to wait until the calyx is brown and the fruit looks shiny. At this point, they should just fall off. Any later, then they are moldy, which is not good.


I find I am eating the ripest berry right away off the vine. If any are left, those are taken home to eat with vanilla ice cream.


When perfectly ripe, the berries fall off the vine readily. I find boysenberries to be fragile. I could not imagine mine would tolerate being sold; they would fall apart.
