Keep on top of these, ensure all shoot are tied off the ground or it will run/invade. Luckily the thornless one is true to to it's description. (not as invasive/vicious/vigorous as Loganberry)  Only seems to be a 1 day difference between under ripe & over ripe fruit. Growing in morning sun/ afternoon shade, fairly protected from wind despite extremes of brisbane climate. Rain during fruiting causes fruit to go soggy and rot if near ripe.

Also watch the ants and their scale farms .. though they do seem to prefer the thornier berry varieties to hide their little sap suckers.

I have just purchased three youngberries from your nursery , it is a fruit that hasbeen on my wishlist for several years now. I first tasted youngberries at a family picnic in December 2008, they had been grown by my brother in Queanbeyan and they were absolutely DELICIOUS!!! I can only describe them as a giant blackberry, rasberry, mulberry fusion. The fruits were large  and sweet and a little bit tart , I imagine they will make a really lovely jam or pie filling. Until now we have always gone blackberrying in summer to get our filll of a luscious sweet berry, but now that I have youngberries growing, here's hoping for a bumper crop of our own .....without the thorns. Younberries will be a seasonal treat that will be much anticipated every year.

birds love them, and you have to contain the plants as they have runners popping up metres away from the parent plant.

Planted May 2008 in a rather dry spot, but fertilised with Thrive and watered well with tank water. Grew rapidly in the spring and produced several berries Oct 2008.

Continued to grow throughout the summer and now has many climbing runners 3 to 4 metres in length.

Autumn 2011: My dad just bought this for me - he was buying onfor himself and it had rooted into a second pot so the nursery just pulled it out and let him have it all.


Spring 2011: New leaves just coming on. :O) And by mid-October I have my first flowers! He is still little but I feel greedy because I have never had youngberries before so I am going to leave them on there!
