Is This Plant Self Pollinating?

Boysenberry is self-fertile, but the fruit crop will be larger if the tree is planted with a second tree.


Rubus ursinus var. loganobaccus

A cross of raspberry, blackberry and the loganberry, Boysenberries were developed by Rudolph Boysen in Northern California. Berries are large, reddish-purple with sweet tangy taste and exceptional flavor! Boysenberries are best used for canning and preserves and for use with other berries in pies and cobblers.

Planting & Care

Choose a well-drained, sunny location with no standing water. Prepare the soil before planting by mixing compost or other organic matter in with the soil. Work the soil deeply. Space plants 6' apart in rows 10' apart. Dig each hole to twice the size of the root mass. Boysenberries require sun with afternoon shade in hot climates. Protect the roots from drying out by watering regularly and mulching. Boysenberry lants are upright, orderly and easy to maintain. Growing 5' - 6', the plants benefit from trimming and can form a sturdy hedge. Boysenberries produce their fruit on year-old canes, so first year the young plants will need to grow their first canes, first harvest will not be until the second year.
