Grow Your Own Boysenberries

The boysenberry is a triple cross of the European Raspberry, a common Blackberry and a Loganberry. Fruits are 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.

on September 28th, 2020
Hi, could you tell me how much room do they take up? What kind of position do they prefer? Do they fruit in the first year or on last year's fruit? Regards Carmel, Wicklow, Ireland
Answered by Niall
on September 29th, 2020
Hi Carmel They like very similar positioning to Blackberries. They will grow quite vigorously once planted so allow about 6/8ft spacing. They need plenty of sun and the sandier the soil the better. They will fruit in year one but really get going in the 2nd year Niall Quickcrop

Hello, what time of the year can you plant this out ? Thanks
Answered by Niall
on November 19th, 2019
Hi Trish We supply all of our fruit as bare root crop which means it goes in over winter or better still this side of Christmas. This allows the roots develop during the winter months before growth starts again above ground Niall Quickcrop

Do they grow in Indianapolis area? What soil do they require?
Answered by Andrew
on July 10th, 2017
Hi Adonna. To be honest as we are based in Europe i am not familiar with the growing conditions in the US. If you do get your hands on some in the States they grow very well in any well fed soil type. Obviously like any fruit they need plenty of sun and well irrigated soil.

Hi, please could you tell me when your bare root boysenberry plants will be available? I am wanting to plant 20 or so, what would the delivery cost of this be to Northallerton in North Yorkshire? Thank you
Answered by Andrew
on June 22nd, 2017
Hi William. We supply the Boysenberry plants as bare root stock in the Winter so don't have them available until they go dormant in October/November. We are looking into supplying potted fruit for next season but are currently building up stocks.

Hi could you tell me if the Boysenberry BR plant is a thornless plant?
Answered by Andrew
on November 24th, 2016
Hi Sarah. I am afraid it has thorns on it but gives great fruit.

How tolerant to strong salt winds are these? Coastal position on Atlantic coast, Co Donegal? Sandy soil with seaweed
Answered by Andrew
on December 10th, 2014
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
