Loganberry &amp; Youngberry - thornless

    3 responses

I purchased 2 of each from Daleys they are still in pots and I am intending on planting them in raised garden beds in my vegie garden. Does anyone know what spacing I should use? My garden beds are 2 metres x 1 metre, I was thinking of putting two on each side with weld mesh for them to grow up in between, or would I be best just putting 2 in a garden bed with the weldmesh for them to grow on and therefore using 2 garden beds. I have the space, we are on 5 acres, I just don't like digging plants up and moving them later. Thanks for your advice

first off, youngberry is a pretty low quality fruit as far as rubus goes. Not even close to raspberry or blackberry. They do not have much sweetness or flavor even when very ripe by comparison.

However, they are bulletproof and yield heavily, and I grow them for this reason. They are also a very healthy snack.

Your bed is big enough for a decent crop. weldmesh is a good option---just make sure is in a heavy gauge, because the vine can get heavy. Include a center post for support. Make your mesh high and you will increase the surface area and you will get a bigger crop. They respond well to citrus fertiliser with trace elements.

The thornless young berry is super vigorous. It also suckers and seeds readily, so be prepared to deal with those. Many seedlings come up thorny as boysenberry, so keep your gloves handy. My kids really like them. I think they are okay for a near no input plant.

adding to this really old thread, my thornless YoungBerry if perfectly purple & ripe is absolutely delicious & not low quality at all says me & everyone else that's tasted them from my plant. They are easy to multiply, I took a one out of the ground that rooted & planted at another yard, growing very well. Loves Spring & Water.
