General description

General description: The loganberry is a hybrid of the North American blackberry and the European raspberry. It’s characterized by elongated, cylindrical fruit of a maroon-red colour. Up to 2.6 kg of fruit may be harvested from one shrub of this cultivar. If pruned, the loganberry fruits abundantly.

Flowers

Flowers: Flowers are white or delicately pink and bloom in June.

Blooming

Blooming: This shrub blooms relatively late, near the end of April. Thank to this, its flowers are not susceptible to harsh spring frosts.

Fruit

Fruit: Loganberry fruit are very large, reaching 6 cm in length and 2 cm in diameter, with a dark red colour and resemble raspberries. They are delicious, aromatic and sweet and sour and uncannily similar in taste to blackberries.

Ripening

Ripening: The loganberry shrub starts to fruit in June, but fruit is ready to be picked at the turn of July and August. Up to 2.5 kg may be harvested from one shrub.

CultivationRequirements

Cultivation requirements: For proper growth and prolific fruiting, the loganberry needs a warm, sunny location sheltered from wind, and fertile, moist but well-drained, nutrient-rich humus soil with a slightly acidic pH. It does not tolerate wet and heavy substrates or dry and sandy soils. It also doesn’t tolerate longer rainless spells, so regular watering is needed during drier periods.

Pruning

Pruning: Long shoots grow from the main cane just above ground, and not from the roots like in the case of raspberries. Therefore, the loganberry requires much less, more careful pruning. Old, withered, or damaged canes should be pruned between the end of August and the beginning of September, after fruiting. Side shoots on the remaining stems should be shortened to approximately 25 cm. Support should be provided if the loganberry is not to sprawl on the ground.

Overwintering

Overwintering: The loganberry is moderately frost resistant (hardiness zone 6b). Protecting young seedlings for the winter by covering them with thick agrotextile is necessary. The protection should be removed come spring.
