Originating from the famous Knott’s Berry Farm in California, this superb hybrid berry is a complicated cross between a blackberry, loganberry, dewberry and raspberry! It is vigorous and a prolific cropper. The fruit is round to oblong in shape and dark purple in colour, they have a unique flavour that combines the tartness fo good old-fashioned wild blackberries with a sweet hint of raspberry. The berries can be eaten fresh or used for bramble and apple jelly or pie fillings. Boysenberries are undemanding, disease/drought resistant and extremely easy to grow.
Eventual height and spread: 2m x 2.5m(4ft). Cropping season: July to September. Self fertile
This product is supplied in a 3L pot.
*Bareroot – November to March is the ideal time to plant bare-root plants. These are plants that have been grown in open ground, then dug up for dispatch and planting during the dormant season. They are called ‘bare-root’ plants as they are supplied with no soil around their roots. They will come packed in damp compost to stop the roots drying out and should be planted as soon as possible. As long as the compost is kept damp planting can be delayed for a few weeks if necessary.
