By Daniela KohnThe Washington Post-ABC News”Blackberry fruit” is a term we used to describe this summer’s apple harvest.
The term has come to mean an orange or grapefruit with a little bit of peel on top.
Now, it is being applied to all of the fruit from the first week of July through the end of July, when the first shipments arrive in the U.S. and Canada.
And the demand for it is soaring.
The fruit is grown by a company called Blackberry Farms.
The company says its products are made of “organic, non-GMO” fruit and “sustainable,” meaning they use less land, water and pesticides.
The company, which is headquartered in Virginia, does not disclose sales figures, but its latest quarterly earnings report posted last month showed that it earned $4.4 million on revenue of $11.5 million, or roughly $1.8 per share.
That compares with an average of about $2.65 per share for the Fortune 500 companies, which reported their first quarterly results last week.
Blackberry’s products are grown on approximately 4,000 acres of land in the Virginia suburbs of Chesapeake, Virginia.
But the company has struggled to keep up with demand for its products in the United States, where demand for organic fruits and vegetables has been growing.
The U.K. has also seen a boom in demand for Blackberries.
A spokesperson for Blackberry told ABC News that demand has been very strong, and that the company expects to see even more demand in coming months.
In a statement to ABC News, the company said that it is working to bring more products to market that are locally sourced and organic.
