Boysenberries - a California delight
Boysenberries are one of California signature produce products, although rarely grown in the State today. The plant first appeared during the 1920's, when horticulturist Rudolph Boysen sold the rights for commercial development to Mr. Walter Knott (aka Knott’s Berry Farm). The exact ancestries of the plant are unknown, but they appear to be a hybrid of European Red Raspberry and Blackberry. This unique combination gives the Boysenberries their delightful sweet and spicy flavor and exquisite, unique color. Nowadays the plant is mainly grown in New Zealand and on the Pacific Coast of the United States. If you live in Oregon or California, browse your local farmers market when these delicious little berries are in season, May to early July. Boysenberries can be found on the fresh produce stands, and they are a real treat baked in pies or prepared as jams or marmalades.


Blackberry
If you like to plant and deciding on whether or not to plant blackberry plants, you need to consider a few things first. You will need to make sure that when they grow, they have more than enough sunshine. They work well with a little bit of shade, but they mostly need sun.

When planting, don't plant them near other vegetable plants. Because plants such a tomato and egg are prone to certain types of bugs. And if the bugs get into them, they will more than likely get into your blackberry plants. Once you plant them cut them back to around six inches and water them right away. Give the plants about an inch of water every week. Water in between the rainy periods. If you take care of the plants and garden, your blackberry plants will give you berries for about 15 to 20 years after the fact.
