I want to pick some blackberries early- will they ripen in the frig (or out) after picking?

    No, but they sure will spoil fast - 2 to 3 days. You can freeze them by putting them on a cookie sheet and putting them in the freezer overnight. Then pop them in a baggie and keep frozen until ready to use.
