Loganberry Bushes - Mid Season

Description of Loganberry Plants & Fruit:
The loganberry makes a great addition to any soft fruit collection. The plants are big, vigorous, hardy and healthy.
Its juicy, acidic fruit are not the most popular for eating fresh (it depends on your taste buds), but that same quality makes them outstanding for use in cooking, jam making, stewing and even brewing wine.
Harvest the fruit when they turn deep red-purple & do it on a dry day.
Loganberry plants will stay in their prime for 15+ years, after which they may begin to decline and crop less.

Characteristics of Loganberry Bushes:

  • Thornless.
  • Self-fertile.
  • Big, vigorous plants.
  • Very big berries.
  • Crop size is 7-8kg per bush.
  • Crops for about 2 months from mid July to the end of August.
  • Good for freezing.

Growing Loganberry Plants:
The canes can snap in strong winds, so it's important to tie them down well to stable wires.
Growing Loganberries is exactly the same as growing blackberries. A rich soil is important - improve with plenty of manure & mulch each year for best results.

Background Information on Loganberry Bushes:

Bred in 1883 by Judge James Logan of Santa Cruz, California and brought over here in 1897. The parents of the Loganberry are thought to be a European Raspberry called 'Red Antwerp' and a Blackberry called 'Aughinbaugh'.
It was used to breed the Tayberry (by crossing with more raspberries) and the Boysenberry (crossed with raspberries & blackberries).

Loganberries are grown commercially in the US for making juice, but they have not caught on over here.
Like wild blackberries, the fruit ripen over a long period, with bunches of fully ripe fruit next to totally unripe ones. Please note that from the autumn of 2010 onwards we only sell the LY654 clone which is almost thornless. Tasting blind, we have been unable to detect any difference between this and the traditional, thorny loganberry.
