Habitat: Probably a hybrid between R. ursinus and the raspberry ‘Red Antwerp’. Rarely naturalized in Britain.

Rubus loganobaccus is a deciduous Shrub growing to 2.5 m (8ft) by 2.5 m (8ft) at a fast rate. It is a spreading or climbing shrub . The plant is found growing in relatively cold-tender and thrives best in areas with mild winters and warm summers. The plant prefers well drained, humus-rich, loamy soil and is best trained on a wire trellis or other structure. The plant has terete, glabrous stem with soft prickles 3–6 mm long. Leaves are imparipinnately compound, with 3, 5 or rarely leaflets; the terminal leaflet is larger than the rest. Leaflets are sparsely pilose below, broadly-ovate and acute to acuminate tip, rounded bases and coarsely serrated margins and on 3–8.5 cm long petiole. Inflorescence is sub corymbose with 6–12 flowers. Sepals are rarely with prickles. Petals are 12–18 mm long by 7–9 mm wide, elliptic, white. Stamens are normally shorter than styles. Ovoid to oblong, aggregate fruit is as large as the largest size blackberry and is of the same shape, with globules similar to that fruit. Fruits are initially green, ripening dark red to dark maroon to purplish-black. Fruits are pleasant, mild, vinous and delightful to the taste and are normally used syrup, jam, and juice. It can also be a complementary menu of your salad…. CLICK & SEE

Loganberry plants are sturdy and more disease- and frost-resistant than many other berries. However, they are not very popular with commercial growers due to several problems which increase labor costs, since the plants tend to be thorny and the berries are often hidden by the leaves. Additionally, berries of varying maturity may grow on a single plant, making it difficult to completely harvest each plant. Loganberries are therefore more commonly grown in household gardens.

A loganberry bush usually produces about ten canes (vines). The canes are not as upright as its raspberry parent, and tend instead to vine more like its blackberry parent. Growth can be undisciplined, with the canes growing five or more feet in a year. Some gardeners train the canes fanwise along a wall or a wire frame. Old canes die after their second year, and should be cut away as they can become diseased, and also hinder harvesting.

Edible Uses:
Loganberries may be eaten fresh without preparation, or used for juice or in jams, pies, crumbles, fruit syrups, and country wines. In common with other blackberry/raspberry hybrids, loganberries can be used interchangeably with raspberries or blackberries in most recipes.

In the UK fresh or canned (tinned) loganberries are often paired with English Sherry trifle, or their juice (or syrup) paired with the Sherry wine.

Loganberry is a popular beverage flavoring in Western New York and parts of Southern Ontario, where it became popular due to being sold at the amusement park at Crystal Beach, Ontario. Even though the park has long been closed down, several companies still sell varieties of loganberry drinks through stores throughout the area, which are sold at several local fast-food franchises such as Mighty Taco in Buffalo, Sport of Kings Restaurant in Batavia, New York as well as at supermarkets. There are also milkshakes flavored with loganberry syrup.
