A Boysenberry is a hybrid plant with some thorns, having blackberry, raspberry, loganberry, and dewberry in its parentage. It is a bramble, and its scientific classification is rubus ursinus x rubus idaeus.

This plant matures early. Sweet 2-1/2″ fruit ripens in early June. Turns dark purple as it fully ripens. Excellent flavor.

Boysenberries are larger and sweeter than blackberries, but comparable to them and raspberries in taste.  Boysenberries are fragile and not typically found in grocery stores.

Boysenberries are great to bake delicious treats like cakes and pies.

Boysenberries contain anthocyanins, which are antioxidants found in plants that contain dark red coloring. They are high in vitamin C and also contain vitamins K and E, manganese, copper, and magnesium.

Boysenberries are one of a group of brambles known as trailing blackberries, meaning the plant needs to be supported by a trellis system. The other type is erect, which does not need outside support. Boysenberries can be successfully grown in pots, with proper trellis support.

Plant Boysenberries in full sun and well-drained soil. Water the plant at its base to avoid fungus growth.

This plant is heat tolerant and self-pollinating. Be sure to protect them during the frosts, plants should be covered with hay or other insulating materials.

Plants should start producing berries in one to two years. Harvest is in late July. Pruning should be done following the harvest in late autumn over the winter.

Self-Fertile,  Zones: 6-9

Generally ships from December – May.
