Blackberry, ‘Olallie’

Olallieberry, Blackberry
Rosaceae
Edible fruit

A USDA cross of ‘Logan’ and ‘Young’ berries, this one has about one-third raspberry, two-thirds blackberry. Fruit is medium to large, shiny black, and firm, with a sweet flavor that has some wild blackberry sprightliness. Trailing, thorny canes can grow 10 ft. in a season, but are commonly controlled by pruning and trellising. Roots are perennial, but canes are biennial: they grow to full length the first season. The second season they bear clusters of white flowers.
