Rubrus Boysenberry Plant

$16.99

Once you see a ripe boysenberry, you will see for yourself that it is a distinctive hybrid combination of two parents: blackberry bush X raspberry bush. The berries are round, very large and purple when completely ripe - when ripe the taste develops an intense floral aroma, sweetly tasting and juicy when fully soft and dark purple. Unfortunately, you probably will never see these in the grocery store or a roadside market, unless you grow some boysenberry bushes for yourself, because the shelf-life is so short in markets. Boysenberry plants are among the easiest fruit bearing plants to grow at home.

Growth Habit

They thrive in the ground in zones 6-9. They grow into viney bushes. Some customers grow them on a trellis. They are self-pollinating. At maturity, they reach 5-6 ft both tall and wide. 

Care

Best grown in full sun, well drained rich soil

Toxicity

Boysenberries don't contain any toxic substances, but some precautions should be taken when giving them to your dog. Moderately resistant to deer and rabbits.
