Rubus loganobaccus

The loganberry (Rubus × loganobaccus) is an octaploid hybrid produced from crossing a hexaploid apomictic blackberry and a tetraploid raspberry.

UsesEdit

Loganberries may be eaten without preparation, used for juice, as well as used as an ingredient in jams, pies, crumbles, fruit syrups and country wines. Loganberries, in common with other blackberry/raspberry hybrids, can be used interchangeably with raspberries or blackberries in most recipes. English Sherry trifle is best with loganberries, as their juice (or syrup in case of tinned berries) combines well with the Sherry wine.

HabitatEdit

The loganberry bush is usually about 10 canes large. The canes are not as upright as its raspberry parent and tend to vine more like its blackberry parent. It can be undisciplined in its growth and the cane (vine) can grow 5 or more feet in a year. Some gardeners train the canes fanwise along a wall or a wire frame. Old canes die after their second year and should be cut away as they can bring disease, and hinder harvesting. If it is not correctly pruned, it can produce blackberry 'sports'.
