What is loganberry? Loganberry (Rubus loganobaccus) is a berry that belongs to the rose family (Rosaceae). It is a combination of the red raspberry (Rubus idaeus) and the wild blackberry (Rubus ursinus). The loganberry fruit and plant looks more like a blackberry than a raspberry, although the color of the fruit is a dark red rather than the pure black most often associated with blackberries.

Loganberry originated in Santa Cruz, California, in 1881. Amateur horticulturist James Harvey Logan had taken an interest in creating a superior hybrid berry that later became the delicate loganberry fruit. It is slightly longer than the raspberry in shape and has smaller seeds than blackberries.


Boysenberry is a hybrid berry that’s believed to be a cross between blackberries, raspberries and loganberries. It’s a member of the family Rosaceae, belonging to the Rubus genus.

Although the plant is thought to have arisen by accident when a California farmer was experimenting with new varieties and crossing berry plants in the 1920s, boysenberry is valued today for its potential health benefits, especially those related to respiratory function. Today, the biggest producer and exporter of boysenberry is New Zealand, but it’s also grown in parts of Oregon and California.



Marion blackberries, sometimes referred to as the “Cabernet of Blackberries,” are the premier blackberry cultivated and used in everything from yogurt, jam, baked goods, and juices. They have a complex, rich flavor, deep reddish-purple color, superior texture and size over other blackberry varietals
