Hybrid Berry Plants

Hybrid berry plants are closely related to the berry plants you are familiar with: blackberries, raspberries, and more. Rest assured, no genetic engineering was involved in creating these plants – just good old fashioned plant breeding! How does it work? Breeders moved pollen between different (but closely related) berry plants and then planted the resulting seeds. These seeds became new berry plants and only the cream of the crop plants were chosen to become new varieties. Think of hybrid berries as “cousins” of the berries you already know and love! Add hybrid berry plants to your garden and enjoy bountiful yields of unique and flavorful fruit.

  • Boysenberries (Rubus ursinus x Rubus idaeus) have blackberry, raspberry, loganberry, and dewberry in their parentage. Famously popular for preserves!
  • Jostaberries (Ribes x nidigrolaria) are unique berry plants that debuted in 1977 as a cross between black currants and gooseberries.
  • Loganberries (Rubus loganobaccus) are the result of a blackberry and raspberry cross. Plants yield large, deep-red fruits that grow and pick like blackberries, but with raspberry flavor notes.
  • Marionberries (Rubus Chehalem x Rubus Olallie) are descendants of blackberries, raspberries, and their crosses, resulting in a fruit that’s similar in flavor and appearance to a blackberry.

To ensure your growing success and satisfaction, there are a few things to consider when you buy a hybrid berry plant.

Zone Compatibility

Your climate plays an important role in whether a berry plant will produce fruit or even survive. Before ordering a plant, make sure its recommended hardiness zone range includes your area.

Proper Pollination

All of these berry plants are self-pollinating, so planting a pollinating partner to increase the size of your crops is completely optional. You’ll get fruit with only one plant!
