Grow Your Own Boysenberries

The boysenberry is a triple cross of the European Raspberry, a common Blackberry and a Loganberry. It grows far larger than the common raspberry and turns a deep maroon colour when ripe. Boysenberries are commonly used in making jams and pies with their particularly juicy and tangy fruit being well suited to cooking.

Named after Californian grower Richard Boysen who conducted experiments in the 1930's crossing the three species, the cross was later grown commercially by Walter Knott. Knott's berry farm became world famous for their distinctive Boysenberry preserves.

The Boysenbery won't be available in your local shop due to it's short shelf life but is an absolute must for the home grower.

Health Benefits:
Boysenberries are a good source of Antioxidants, Calcium, Magnesium, Vitamin C, Iron and Potassium.

How tolerant to strong salt winds are these? Coastal position on Atlantic coast, Co Donegal? Sandy soil with seaweed
Answered by Andrew

Boysen berries are reasonably hardy but like most plants they won't like strong salt winds. I would always recommend any coastal garden should have either a windbreak fence with mesh of hardy hedge to break the force of the wind. You will be amazed at the difference in growth with a bit of shelter. We sell a green windbreak mesh on our site which is excellent. If yu don't like the look of the mesh plant a hedge along it, the hedge will be protected while it grows and once established you can remove the mesh. I hope this helps. Andrew
