Description

A unique and flavorful berry! This natural cross between blackberries and red raspberries produces long, tasty, dark red berries that are good for fresh eating, juicing, or making pies, jams and jellies. Thornless canes grow horizontally, so supports help keep fruit off the ground. Berries are sweetest when allowed to ripen on the bush. Heat-tolerant. Ripens in June. Self-pollinating.

When your plant matures, it will be approximately 4 - 6' tall x 12 - 24" wide.

Recommended Spacing

We recommend spacing these plants 12 - 24" apart to ensure room for growth.

I've had thorned Loganberries. They were painful to pick, yet I loved the taste of these berries. They are especially delicious in jam. So, the solution was to find a thornless variety of the same berry.
Ella L on Jun 27, 2020
Have blackberries that thrive, raspberries die off, so this is the hybrid. I also chose the gallon size so I don't get stuck with nearly dead bare roots as I did with Guerney's.

Thornless/different taste.
Jonathan O on May 11, 2020
We have several boysenberry and blueberry bushes that are prolific with spring berries. We were looking for a red berry to add to our yard. Thornless, after dealing with the boysenberry thorns, sounds fantastic during picking and pruning stage. We live in the coastal area of So Cal in a hot zone 10 and needed a hardier berry to survive the heat.

how do they handle late frosts? we have frost as late as may 1,
keith h on Jun 8, 2016
Do these spread like raspberries do. from under ground runners?
Gloria C on May 1, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No. They are propagated by allowing the end of a runner to contact the ground. There it will develop roots and can then be transplanted.
can u grown in containers?
sandra r on Apr 25, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, I placed mine in a 1.5 cubic foot container and it has tripled its size in our current spring like conditions here in Las Vegas, but in summer I will move to where it gets morning sun and afternoon shade so the pot does not turn into an "oven" and cook the roots. Have very long laterals that will be fruiting canes next year. Happy Gardening!
Just how "thornless" are these? Any problems with them reverting to thorny?
Barbara C on Jan 5, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Plants are completely thorn-less. All side shoots have also been thorn-less, no issues.
can loganberries be planted near native black raspberries ?
P E on Oct 5, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes they can. Just like Boysenberries they are a cross between Blackberries
and Raspberries. I have mine planted next to Blackberries, Raspberries, and Boysenberries and all 4 types of berries are doing fine.
I received my gift of 3 Loganberry plants from my grandaughter, Logan, who I nicknamed Loganberry. They just arrived at my house in zone 9-A as bare root. Is it too early to plant them and if so, what do I do with them? Keep them wet?
Kathy H on Sep 25, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hi, Kathy. What a cute story! You can plant them right away if it's not over 90 on a regular basis and no severe weather is coming your way. Keep them partly shaded in the afternoon for a few days to help them along. The fruit is truly wonderful.
Are these freestanding or do they need to be trellised?
Birdy on May 11, 2020
BEST ANSWER: They look like they would be better on a trellis. Mine are not and will grow down to the ground if I don???t figure out a way for them to grow up. Currently in a pot until I find a permanent location to plant them. I have had my plants a year.
how do you prune loganberry?
wezzie on Mar 17, 2018
BEST ANSWER: My old canes produce fruit in the spring and then die back. Then the new canes produce berries later in the summer. The difference between a new cane and an old one are very obvious. I also trim the tops off, some of the canes can be 10+ feet long and this is too big for my garden area.
My Loganberries are too tart to eat unlike loganberries in the past. On the vine they are Firm one day mush the next never a perfect time to pick. Most dried up for that reason. Is it the soil?Help!
Lynda W on Aug 6, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I pick my berries every two days and always pick them in the morning. I also grow blackberries with mine. I read somewhere that growing blackberries or raspberries with loganberries will help produce a larger bounty. When you pick every two days you can always catch them at the peak of ripeness, because when you go back out in two days time, the ones that were close will definitely be ripe then. Ripe loganberries are a deeper red-purple. My hubby has picked them too early before and thinks they are tart. If you wait an extra couple days and let them get darker they are sweeter. Look at pictures of loganberries online to see the color I am talking about. My loganberries seem to be the sweetest when they start to loose that gloss that berries have. If nothing else, when in doubt pick it. Almost anything you do with loganberry might need sugar added to it like pies or jams. Even juice.

I hope this helps some.
what is eating my loganberry leaves? There is some bug eating the leaves but I don't see anything on the plants

What is a cell pack vs a gallon pot?
GiaDub on May 11, 2020
BEST ANSWER: A Jumbo Cell Pack is a bigger version of the divided 6-packs in which you might have bought annuals or vegetable plants in at a garden center. These one-year-old plants are new starts - about 4-6" tall - and will grow rapidly during the next growing season.

The 1-gallon plant is in a #1 trade gallon pot (about 2/3 of a standard gallon) and is two years old, and has an an advanced root system. These plants are two years old and about a foot tall at shipping.
How long before these have berries?
Pbptrainer on Mar 28, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Most berry plants take 2-3 years to bear fruit. The gallon size will bear sooner because it's an older plant.
Since this is a cross with blackberries, is there an issue planting these near raspberries (or any other fruit for that matter)?
AbbyJ on May 7, 2018
BEST ANSWER: There is a difference between black raspberries and loganberries; the latter is species Rubus loganobaccus. Black raspberries are species Rubus occidentalis, They have very different features and growing habits and are neither compatible or a threat to the other.
Are there any pollinating partners with the loganberry?
Troy H on Nov 13, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Loganberries are a hexaploid hybrid. Loganberries are self-fertile and heavy-bearing, and there really is no pollinating partner that would benefit fruit production.
Does it have large or small seeds? Large seeds unpleasant in "smoothies".
MARCIA F on Feb 27, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The Thornless Loganberry has small seeds. Enjoy your smoothies!

Hot climate survivor
After trying raspberries and blackberries in southern Arizona I finally found that Logan berries from Stark do quite well in temps over 110 degrees. One year after planting, the first year canes are yielding some good fruit and the new canes for next year are really coming on strong, much earlier in the season.

Taste Great and Freeze Well
Simply a great tasting berry. I have 10 of the thornless plants from which I get pound and pounds of berries many of which I freeze and eat them all year long. Tastes more Raspberry than Blackberry ... also they are very high in vitamin C

So Far So Good
it's May in California and I am already enjoying these berries. I love the fact they are thornless, that gives me the courage to plant them in hard to prune areas. They do need fertilizing more than the Marionberries I ordered.

will they grow?
I purchased logan berries aprox. 3 growing seasons ago and had high hopes for success as they were supposed to grow well thru zone 10. I live in sebring, fl. zone 9, after the 3rd season began I gave up, not only did they not grow they never increased in size! I dug them up only to find the root ball had not grown in size.

Beautiful Vine
Beautiful Vine and it started putting on fruit the first year. The only problem I've had was doubles (one big berries with a tumor-like second growing off the side. I'd say 60% of this problem. Not sure exactly what's causing it. Tart berry even when "ripe"

Doing well.
Did not expect anything for the first season of them, they are turning into a large bush this year and should be putting off their first berries. Good plant.

Tiny plants grew to 8 ft in the first season then provided tons of berries the second season. You have to wait to pick them until they are soft and almost wine colored, not firm and red like a raspberry.

...too early to tell Difficult to rate this item
Beautiful plants arrived. Tough, very dry summer followed by a winter with little snow UNTIL late Spring, which took a toll on many plants & trees. The loganberries have survived but are very small. Hope that they grow. We have thornless blackberries from Miller/Stark & they are great!!
