Q.

juice coming out of blackberry vine

Zone 22556 | stevenelidagoins added on October 24, 2016 | Answered

I trimmed my blackberry vines back and they started to bleed a lot of juice out of the stem. Is that clean water or what coming out? These vines are about 1 inch thick down to 1/2 inch thick. It looks like clean water to me. I was just wondering if I could taste it safely. Thanks

Pruning is generally done when the plants are dormant.
Your plants are producing sap from the pruning cuts since the plants are not dormant.
