KeriberryBotanical Name: Rubus rugosus var. thwaitsii

A supply of fresh berries in early spring when there is few other fruits available is very welcomed. The fruit looks like a large blackberry and has a flavour between that and a raspberry. A strong trellis is needed for support. Very vigorous. Weed Warning: This very desirable and heavy fruiting berry is a very vigorous grower. It can be easily maintained in a garden situation by mowing around the production area to keep down the runners, however if neglected and abandoned the runners will gradually spread through a large area and can be difficult to regain the balance. Grown commercially in NZ for years this beauty is capable of bearing almost all year round in warmer climates.

Keriberry (Cutting) 7/10

Similar in taste to Boysenberries. Holds its fruit in clusters at the end of its canes. Fruits in winter when other fruit is scarce. Does not produce large volumes of fruit together like the Boysenberry does, but produces smaller volumes over a prolonged period. Grow on a trellis to keep off the ground. Said to be native, but other information suggests it was imported a lot of years ago. Worth a go.
