||Rubus ursinus var. loganobaccus
Boysenberry is a hybrid of blackberry, raspberry, dewberry and loganberry. The plant produces a very large berry with a wonderfully tangy, sweet flavor. Excellent quality with few seeds and a pleasant aroma. This variety is thornless! Their white blooms will attract pollinators to your garden in spring. Self-pollinating but higher production with other varieties.
||Wonderful flavor that has the juiciness of a blackberry along with the sweet, floral notes of a raspberry. A bit tangier than both, this delicious fruit is valued for snacking, canning, preserving and pie making.
||This has a vine-like trailing, spreading, bramble growth habit that is upright or overhanging and reaches between 3'-5'. Use a trellis to help support the canes.
||Spring: White flowers
||Plant in full sun (minimum 6 hours)
||Well-draining loamy soil. Average water needs; they do not like to dry out. Water from below to prevent rust and rot.
|Planting and Care Tip:
||You will need to prune dead floricanes every fall when they are going dormant and prune primocanes until there are just 5-7 per plant. Rule of thumb is to avoid fertilizing when they are dormant. Slow release balance fertilizer is recommended as new growth appears.
