Thanks for the posts. We'll try the pH testing. My husband thinks lime will help, and I think that does increase the acidity. Okie-Dokie - we're not picking them green, in fact they're only just now blooming this year. We're basing this on the past two years' berries. When they are fully ripe they look great, and are very juicy, but the taste is terrible. They taste "mucky" - no other way I can think to describe it - kind of bitter, mainly just taste like you're eating a mouthful of muck! Never seen anything like it in my life. Wild blackberries around here are usually great, but not these. Thanks again, everybody!
