Magnify glass


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. The berries have a unique flavour that combines the tartness of good old-fashioned wild blackberries with a sweet hint of raspberry. The fruit 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.

To encourage vigorous new growth and help establishment, cut all stems back to 30cm (1ft) above ground at planting time. To prune thereafter each winter, just cut out the dead canes that fruited the previous season and train in the new, tying them onto support wires from where they will product their fruiting spurs the following season. Mulch yearly with well rotted compost or manure to retain moisture and suppress weeds. Water well in dry periods, and apply a growmore type fertiliser in the spring.
