Loganberry – The Mysterious Berry
Have you ever heard of a loganberry? It’s a mysterious berry that not many people know about. But those who have tasted it, swear by its exquisite taste.
The Growth Process
To begin with, let us talk about how long it takes for a loganberry to grow. The growth process is nothing like the usual berries we are familiar with. A loganberry bush can take up to two years to mature before it starts bearing fruit! That’s quite an extended period compared to other fruits such as strawberries or blueberries.
Once matured, the plant produces white flowers in spring and summer which then morphs into juicy red berries by mid-summer.
Growing loganberries requires certain conditions and care, without which they won’t thrive correctly. They need well-draining soil with adequate amounts of moisture and sunlight exposure.
Moreover, these bushes require support during their growth as they tend to get tangled due to their brambly nature.
If taken care of correctly, one plant could produce around five pounds of delicious berries!
The Taste Test
The tantalizing taste of Loganberries has been described as tart yet sweet flavor similar to raspberries but more tangy with hints of blackberries’ bitterness.
While difficult to find in stores due mainly because they don’t travel well making them hard for commercial growers willing or able only sell after picking them themselves from local farmers markets or pick-your-own farms.
Loganberries truly are a perplexing fruit that takes time and effort but rewards one’s patience through its unique flavor profile that leaves your taste buds bursting with satisfaction!
