What people may be seeing now or soon are dew berries. Blackberries are summer.

Seems like in the past they have been ripe way before may, used to go pick them with my father right before my birthday every year and that is in April.

I've eaten several dewberries. Don't know of any actual blackberries around, though.

We had some odd cold snaps in April that possibly pushed it back, but most plants bloom based on daylight, not heat.

They're not even flowering yet in the god-forsaken state of Illinois. However, when they do decide to ripen, the campground I'm staying in is loaded with bushes.
