Blackberry is a strange fruit

Eight out of 10 young people think of a blackberry as a mobile phone rather than a fruit, according to a poll.

When asked what a “blackberry” was, 82% of 16 to 24-year-olds said they would be most likely to think instantly of a smartphone, the survey for the Environment Department suggested.

Farming Minister David Heath said there was a “huge level of disengagement from the countryside” as the survey also revealed that more than half of adults (55%) have not been to a farm in the past 10 years.
