Blemish on Blackberries
I have started to harvest my blackberries, and they have white places where the blackberries are. What is wrong? Do I have to remove those white places?

If it is what I think it is, it is simply due to seeds that were not properly pollinated. Ths summer has been hard on pollination of plants because of the high heat and humidity in most of the country. This makes the pollen stick together and pollination is not as successful as it should be. If it is pollination, these white cells are also shriveled and stunted. They are safe to eat though.
