Plant details

Judge Logan discovered the loganberry growing in his California garden in 1880. It has remained popular ever since for its large, succulent, conical red fruits, which have a rich tangy flavour. They ripen after raspberries but before blackberries. The plant needs similar conditions to blackberries - sunny site with fertile, well-drained soil - with a little more heat and sunlight. 'LY 654' is a thornless form, with light green, smooth stems, that has been selected for consistent health and performance. The brittle canes are easily damaged by strong winds unless tied in securely to wires, ideally as a fan-shape. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it their prestigious Award of Garden Merit.
