Loganberry LY654 thornless 3L
Originating from California, this cross is possibly the best known of the hybrid berries. This thornless raspberry/blackberry hybrid produces very high yields of enormous, long, cone-shaped berries ripening from mid July. Loganberries have an excellent aromatic flavour, they are juicier but sharper than raspberries. The fruit is ideal for all purposes and is best cropped when they turn deep red in colour. Bushy vigorous growth and the branches need permanent support so is ideal for training against a wall or fence.

Caring and Maintenance

Water during dry periods. Remove any weeds by hand and place a mulch around the plant in winter if you would like to avoid further weeds. Prune when dormant between late autumn and late winter. Aim to remove the old wood, as fruit grows on new wood.

Planting

  • Planting Distance: 1.2m

These soft fruits will tolerate a wide range of soil conditions, but prefer well-drained conditions. A pH of 4.0 - 6.0 is ideal. They prefer full sun, but will also grow in partial shade.
Dig a hole at least twice the size of the root ball. Ideally, mulch with compost or rotted manure. Firm the bush in well before watering.

Can be planted at any time of the year, as it is a containerised plant.

Fruit Benefits

These fruits should be eaten or frozen within a few days of harvest. They please even the most sophisticated of palates, and can be made into jams and preserves to bring great summer memories on autumn or winter days. Freshly picked fruit will bring your desserts to life with a flavour that simply can't be matched by mass produced, shop bought fruit. When planning your garden, try to choose varieties with fruits that ripen from early summer to late autumn to ensure a constant supply of fresh fruits throughout the warmer months.
