“According to the Dietary Guidelines for Americans, not a single age group 9 years old and over are getting enough fruit in their diet. Americans should be eating an average of two cups of fruit per day (recommendations vary depending on age and gender).”

According to Wikipedia, Cultivated blackberries are notable for their significant contents of dietary fiber, vitamin C, and vitamin K (table).
A 100 gram serving of raw blackberries supplies 43 calories and 5 grams of dietary fiber or 25% of the recommended Daily Value (DV) (table). In 100 grams, vitamin C and vitamin K contents are 25% and 19% DV, respectively, while other essential nutrients are low in content (table).
Blackberries contain both soluble and insoluble fiber components.
The soft fruit is popular for use in desserts, jams, seedless jelly, and sometimes wine. It is often mixed with apples for pies and crumbles. Blackberries are also used to produce candy.
