Rubus L. subgenus Rubus

Although thorny, Marionberry has such an incredible, rich flavor that many people prefer it to any other berry for eating out of hand and for making superb pies, jellies, juices or wine. It was developed at Oregon State University in 1945 by crossing a Chehalem blackberry (a berry with native blackberry, Loganberry, and raspberry in its background) with a Olallieberry (itself a blackberry cross) and named after Marion county in Oregon. Marionberry is still held up as the flavor to beat by berry breeders.

Plants produce consistently heavy crops of high quality fruit starting in July and continuing for several weeks. Not to be confused with the former mayor of Washington, DC. USDA Zones 7-9.

Size: 4" Pot


Ask a Question
  • How tall and do they get

    Marionberries are cone fruit, like blackberries or raspberries, but extra large. The canes need a trellis and can get up to 20 feet long in a season.

  • Is this self-fertile, or does it need some kind of pollinator?

    Marionberries are self-fruitful.

  • what kind of supports will marionberries need? trellis, tomato cage type? or will they be bush and trailing like, more like the himalayan blackberries? thank you!

    Wired trellising works best. They are a long cane like blackberries.

Marion berries

They looked good when I got them but I think it got a little cold for them and they died

You’ve got to be kidding me….

I drove to your nursery to pick up my Marionberry plants and was totally shocked to see that they were a single sprig that was 3.5 inches tall. I paid $15.99 for each sprig. I have ordered berry plants from you before and they were well established 2ft. plants. I realize that the nursery has changed hands but…..

hope they grow

well I got my 4 plants in 3.5" pots just a dry stick about 3" high. I dug the hole about 2-3 times the size of the plant put in some compost soil mix watered and surrounded it with 1" chicken wire to protect them from critters like deer and bunnies. it has been only 2 weeks but no signs of life. will these little sticks actually grow? I hope so but right now they really look sad. I was really expecting vines about 8" and some signs of life. but reserving judgement until maybe July
