Boysenberries combine the best of Loganberries, Blackberries and Raspberries. This beautiful berry with its deep colour consists of many small berries and is about twice the size of a raspberry. Boysenberries have a sweet and mild sour taste.
Although Boysenberries are not well known yet in the Benelux, the Boysenberry exists since 1920. The name Boysenberry comes from the Californian berry farmer, Rudolph Boysen. The boysenberry has been introduced in New Zealand in 1930 and due to the optimal climate in New Zealand, New Zealand is now one of the largest producers of Boysenberries.
