Rubus ursinus x loganberry 'Cascade'
Originally introduced in 1940, this was an exciting cross between the highly flavorful but very small NW Native blackberry (R. ursinus), and the wildly popular Loganberry. This berry was a widely-planted backyard crop for decades, but it has long since been unavailable. Many still ask for it, because of an unmatched wild trailing blackberry flavor, larger size and higher productivity.
Grow their thin canes on a trellis, so they won't be underfoot and so you can easily pick these uniquely tasty, dusky gems. We offer female plants that are self fertile. Fruit on healthy, disease-resistant canes ripens in July. USDA Zones 7-9.
