Product Description

The loganberry plant has trailing canes like a blackberry, fruit that looks and picks like a raspberry, and a flavor that is truly a cross of both its parents. You see, in the late 1880s, in Santa Cruz, California, in the yard of horticulturalist James Harvey Logan, an accidental discovery was made: Logan attempted to create a new, better, cultivar of blackberry by crossing two different varieties, so he planted many cross-pollinated seeds from his berry patch. Much to his surprise, he also ended up with a hybrid cross between his Red Antwerp raspberry and Aughinburgh blackberry. Logan discovered this was a new blackberry-raspberry hybrid (later called Loganberry) when one of the many seedlings from his plantings displayed its own unique characteristics as a plant as well as in its fruit. In your yard, you will be able to enjoy a bounty of loganberries between mid- to late-summer. Loganberry fruit seeds are smaller than those of both its blackberry and raspberry parents and are soft and not very numerous. Berry usage proves to be very versatile — great for fresh-eating, jam, juice, pies, salads, syrup, wine, etc. Loganberries may be used in any recipe that calls for blackberries or raspberries. Loganberries store well for a few days in refrigeration and can also be frozen for longer keeping. Kids love eating them, and, with their culinary versatility, “too many berries” will never be an issue – but stained fingers may be unavoidable!
