Product Description

A thornless clone of the Longaberry which is a cross between a raspberry and a blackberry. Large dark red fruit produced from mid-July until the end of August, with a sharp taste. It has a more subtle flavour than a raspberry and can be quite tart, so needs plenty of sugar when cooked in desserts. Use it as you would any other summer berry – eat fresh with sugar or cream, or add to desserts, jams and coulis. In savoury cooking, loganberries go particularly well with game dishes.

Care instructions Grow in heavy soil rather than chalky soil that may be low in iron and magnesium. Mulch generously with manure in late autumn to ensure the soil has plenty of nitrogen. Ensure the planting site will be open and sunny but sheltered from northeast wind. Till the rows so they run north-south. Place at 2m intervals against north or northeast arches, fences or walls. Supports should be placed at 60cm, 1.2m or 2m heights. Harvest the fruit in August and September from canes that are 1 year old and cut them to ground level in October
