Boysenberry (Cane)

Rubus ursinus x ideaus


  • Long, nearly thornless canes
  • Sweet-tart fruit
  • Vigorous and high yielding

Perennial fruit with nearly thornless, long canes producing deep purple to black berries with a sweet-tart flavour. Vigorous and high yielding. The sweet fruit can be eaten fresh or used in pies, crumbles, drinks and preserves. Boysenberry is a hybrid between raspberry, blackberry, dewberry and loganberry, bred in the 1920s in California by Rudolph Boysen. Suitable for growing in all climates with a cold winter.

Boysenberries produce fruit on two-year-old canes (called floricanes). 

Berry canes are the roots and stems of the plant that are grown for a year then pruned to a single stem, dug up and sold bare-rooted (without soil). Canes will grow vigorously in the first year after planting.
