Loganberries are a Great Source of Vitamin C
Developed in California, the Loganberry (Rubus Loganobaccus) is a cross between a variety of blackberry and a raspberry. They have a similar shape to a raspberry with a darker colour and a sharper flavour. They are frost hardy, practically disease free and grow much easier than most other berries.
Fruit is produced throughout August and September with picking best delayed until fruits darken to a deep purple colour to obtain the best-flavoured fruit.Logan berries are delicious in crumbles, pies, jams, juice, fruit syrups and country wines and can be substituted for raspberries or blackcurrants in recipies.
A bush can produce ten canes which tend to grow undisciplined but this can be prevented by arranging them to grow fanwise along a wall or wire frame. Old canes die after two years and should be removed to prevent loss in the next harvesting. This is the non thorny variety.
Loganberries have high levels of important vitamins, including Vitamins A, C, D, E, K and various B vitamins. The berries are also a rich source of Antioxidants, Fibre, Potassium, Iron and Calcium.
