Boysenberries
AAA
Boysenberries were discovered in California, USA by Rudolph Boysen (circa 1920). Its parentage is thought to be a cross between Loganberry, blackberry and Cuthbert raspberry. Originally farming in the Napa Valley, he moved to Anahiem in Orange County, California. From here Walter Knott propagated them further in 1934. As their popularity grew, Mrs Knott began making preserved – which ultimately made Knotts Berry Farm in Buena Park, California, world famous. Climatically, boysenberries are very sensitive. This is why they are not widely planted around the world. Today the main growing areas are parts of the West Coast of USA, Chile and New Zealand
