Summary and Appearance Edit

Resemblance Edit

The plant and the fruit of loganberry resemble the blackberry more than the raspberry, but the fruit color is a dark red, rather than black as in blackberries. Loganberries are cultivated commercially and by gardeners.

Hybrid? Edit

Yes, the loganberry (Rubus × loganobaccus) is a hybrid of blackberry (Rubus ursinus) and raspberry (Rubus idaeus).

Origin Edit

The loganberry was derived from a cross between Rubus ursinus (R. vitifolius) 'Aughinbaugh' (octaploid) as the female parent and Rubus idaeus 'Red Antwerp' (diploid) as the male parent (pollen source); the loganberry is hexaploid. It was accidentally created in 1881 in Santa Cruz, California by the American judge and horticulturist James Harvey Logan (1841–1928).
