Originating from the famous Knott’s Berry Farm in California, this superb hybrid berry is a complicated cross between a blackberry, loganberry, dewberry and raspberry! It is vigorous and a prolific cropper. The fruit is round to oblong in shape and dark purple in colour, they have a unique flavour that combines the tartness fo good old-fashioned wild blackberries with a sweet hint of raspberry. The berries can be eaten fresh or used for bramble and apple jelly or pie fillings. Boysenberries are undemanding, disease/drought resistant and extremely easy to grow.
