Blackberries Along a Woodland Trail

While on a walk along the Cross Florida Greenway that runs near our house, I chanced across scattered patches of blackberries. I wondered if I should be wary since bears are occasionally seen in the area and might be attracted to this food source. However, the berry patches showed no signs of any feeding bears yet, and I think I found out why.

I had to try a ripe, dark berry to see how it tasted. Oh my gosh! It was sour and bitter, and I quickly expelled as much as possible from my mouth. I forgot about the bears for the rest of the hike, my only concern being ridding my mouth of the awful taste.
