Blackberries in Bloom
Wild blackberries are bountiful along California's bright and shining Delta waterways this Spring! Blackberry bushes are an abundant source of nectar and produce pollen that is grey in color. While not traditionally considered "pretty", blackberry pollen is delicious, nutritious, and contributes to the gorgeous rainbow of fresh pollen our bees produce. The next time you see a little speck of grey in your tablespoon of fresh bee pollen, thank a bee and a blackberry!
