Rubus fruticosus x idaeus

This heavy-bearing backyard winner, a cross between blackberry and raspberry, was developed in the Tay River valley in Scotland. Vigorous, arching, thorny canes produce large, flavorful berries that are very long, narrow and reddish black when ripe. Tayberry can be grown in a sprawling clump, like a black raspberry. USDA Zones 5-9


Size: 4" Pot


Ask a Question
  • Are these self fertile?

    Yes they are

  • Do they need support such as like a traditional raspberry trellis

    No they don't get nearly as large, but they spread more quickly.

  • What in-row spacing for tayberries?

    4 foot centers is usually acceptable for Tayberry.

  • Can Tayberries, Boynesberry, and Marionberry all be grown on the same trellis system? Or should they be grown away from each other?

    They can all grow together if there is enough space to manage them!

  • Are the tayberries floricane or primocane bearing?

    They are floricane bearing.

  • What are their light requirements?

    Full sun to partial shade.

  • Do tayberries produce fruit within the first season it's planted?

    Usually yes!

  • What variety of Tayberry and Marionberry do you sell?

    Our Tayberries are the original from Tay River Valley in Scotland. Our Marionberries are true Marionberries, not to be confused with the several Marion-like-berries that have been developed to ripen earlier or later.

  • What cultivar are these tayberries? I bought one and especially need to know for future pruning as, like their raspberry progenitor, there are primocane varieties and floricane varieties.

    These are the original cultivar of Tayberries from the Tay River Valley in Scotland, which would make them floricane bearing.

  • Do these fair well in containers?

    They do, but they will need extra irrigation.

Packaging was a little rough but that’s more on delivery folks. Plant looks healthy so far. Excited to see how well it does.




Plant arrived in excellent condition, but has not grown as quickly as I had hoped. However, it is planted in an area with mainly clay soil and gets quite a bit of shade. I’m guessing it would do better in better growing conditions. Still, it is growing some.

Arrived well packaged. A very small plant for the price. I immediately planted it and it is growing nicely. Excited to have Tay berries sometime in the future.
