Boysenberry Plants carry almost oblong dark purple fruit with all the flavour of a wild blackberry - although several times the size. Boysenberries are quite vigorous and crop very heavily. A fairly complicated cross between loganberries, raspberries and dewberries,Boysenberry plants are immensely hardy. They are also even more resistant to disease and drought than blackberries.
Children love them and race along the row to find the biggest fruit first. Every soft fruit garden should have at least one - or two for families of 4 plus.
Given their tough nature, cultivation is easy. All boysenberry plants demand is light and a modicum of drainage - they are not good in the shade or on potters clay. Otherwise, plant them at 2 metre intervals, improve the soil if you feel like it and pick the berries....
