I think the order's wrong: The flower comes first (it's white) then the green berry...

The berries do get lighter before they turn red but I wouldn't say "white as snow"

I've seen blackberries when they're in that supposed "white" stage, and frequently they're merely a light-pinkish or even yellowish color. This riddle was too literal.

I was thinking about a photo of each of these things.

I think when you have to explain your answer to make people understand, then maybe its a little too hard.

i love blackberries, but how are we supposed to know what color they are in their stages?

once you actually think about it, it's kinda obvious.

I liked it, thanks. It's a fun teaser, and that is all it needs to be, just fun.
