Blackberry, ‘Logan’

Loganberry, Blackberry
Rosaceae
Edible fruit, Perennials

Bred by Judge Logan, a Scot transplanted to California, in the late 1800’s. Probably a hybrid of Pacific dewberry (Rubus ursinus) and raspberry (Rubus idaeus). Trailing and early, ‘Logan’ has large berries that are light red, not darkening when ripe, with fine hairs that dull the fruit’s color. Flavor is more tart than ‘Boysen’; excellent for canning and pies.

A thornless variety, ‘Thornless Logan’, is also available.
