Overview

blackberries


Quick Reference

Proverbially taken as the type of something plentiful.

In some regions, it was traditionally thought unlucky to pick blackberries after a certain date, such as Michaelmas (29 September) or All Saints' Day (1 November), as it was believed that after that date the fruit had been spoiled by the Devil or other malefic powers.
