Flowers to Fruit 2014

Daniel Shires and his summer intern flagging individual flowers in the blackberry field. 
Yesterday, while on a farm visit with Daniel Shires, Area Agent, Agriculture, at the Cleveland County Cooperative Extension office we started a little project. We flagged 5 flowers from Natchez, Ouachita, Osage, Navaho and Von. He took pictures and will be going back to those same flowers as they develop into fruit to determine how long it takes for each of these blackberries to get from a flower at full bloom to a ripe berry ready to harvest. We will be posting pictures here, as he sends them.

How long do you think it will take for each berry to get ripe? 20, 30, 40, 50 or more days? Follow the progression here.
