HYBRID BERRIES

In addition to the loganberry, , there are several hybrid berries cultivated in Britain. The best is probably the dark red boysenberry, which is black when fully ripe and though sharp, of a pleasing flavour. A strong grower, fruiting freely when established. Resistant to drought, the berries may be added to apple pies, in the same way as quinces. The boysenberry is grown commercially in South Africa, and therefore requires a sunny situation. It should be cultivated in precisely the same way as the loganberry.
