Thornless Boysenberry

Thornless Boysenberry

A juicy winner in jams

A cross between the red raspberry and the blackberry, Thornless Boysenberry boasts more sweet tart flavor than either of its parents. The 2-in. or larger purple-black berries are seedless and juicy, first appearing in July. An excellent staple for jams as well as fresh eating. Trailing canes grow 4-6 ft. Yields 4-6 quarts of fruit per plant. Self-pollinating. Zones 6-8. 1-yr. bareroot.
