(American Black Raspberry)

Bearing sweet black dome-shaped fruit in early summer, this native of central and eastern North America is the primary parent of the cultivated black raspberries. A spiny medium-sized deciduous shrub, it bears three- to five-parted compound leaves on attractively whitewashed purple stems. The arching stems often bend to the ground and root at their tips. The inconspicuous white flowers appear in spring. Plants flower and fruit on second-year canes, which die after fruiting.

Black raspberries...

Black raspberries are upright deciduous shrubs derived from the North American native Rubus occidentalis. The insignificant flowers produce edible black fruit in summer on blue-gray, prickly canes. There are many cultivars, selected for color, flavor, and harvest time. 'Cumberland' bears large, firm, glossy black berries noted for their outstanding flavor. Plants produce canes that mature their first year, bear fruit their second, and then die back.

Black raspberries prefer sun and well-drained,...

(American Black Raspberry)

Introduced in 1897, the black raspberry cultivar 'Munger' bears shiny, blue-black, dome-shaped berries in early summer, preceded by inconspicuous white flowers. It descends from Rubus occidentalis, a spiny medium-sized deciduous shrub from eastern and central North America.

The sweetly flavored, medium-sized berries have few seeds. They are excellent fresh or for pies, preserves, or freezing. The arching, attractively whitewashed purple stems bear flowers and fruit in their second year....

(Loganberry )

Originating in the garden of Judge J. H. Logan of Santa Cruz, California, in the early 1880s, this presumed hybrid of red raspberry (Rubus idaeus) and California blackberry (Rubus ursinus) is a trailing, bristly, deciduous shrub grown for its juicy edible fruits. Sparse, long, lax canes bear white flowers in spring, followed in summer by heavy crops of plump conical red berries. Their tart zesty flavor make them a favorite for canning and pies. Thornless selections of loganberry...

(Rabbiteye Blueberry)

A medium-sized to large semi-evergreen or deciduous shrub native to the southeastern and south-central United States, rabbiteye blueberry has given rise to many of the best blueberry cultivars for warm humid climates. It produces succulent spherical blue fruit in spring or early summer, preceded by small white urn-shaped flowers in early spring. The dull dark green leaves turn bright red in fall. This upright shrub often grows taller than head-high. It is self-sterile, requiring the presence of more...

(Powderblue Blueberry, Rabbiteye Blueberry)

A medium-sized to large semi-evergreen or deciduous shrub native to the southeastern United States, rabbiteye blueberry figures in the ancestry of many of the best blueberries for warm climates, including this popular cultivar. A 1978 introduction from North Carolina, 'Powderblue' bears medium to large light-blue fruits in late spring, toward the end of the rabbiteye season. The sweet-flavored fruits are less prone to cracking than are those of the similar 'Tifblue', and are excellent fresh or in...

(Rabbiteye Blueberry)

A medium-sized to large semi-evergreen or deciduous shrub native to the southeastern and south-central United States, rabbiteye blueberry has given rise to many of the best blueberry cultivars for warm climates. The cultivar 'Premier' produces large flavorful light blue fruit from mid- to late spring, 2 to 3 weeks before 'Tifblue.' They are preceded by waxy pale white flowers in early spring. The dull dark green foliage turns bright red in fall. This upright shrub eventually grows taller than head-high....

(Rabbiteye Blueberry, Tifblue Blueberry)

Valued for its flavorful fruits and its tolerance of hot humid summers, rabbiteye blueberry is a medium-sized deciduous or semi-evergreen shrub native to the southeastern United States. Introduced in 1955 and still the most widely grown rabbiteye cultivar, 'Tifblue' bears white or pale pink flowers in early spring, followed in about 86 days by tasty pale blue berries. The bluish-green leaves turn red in autumn in colder zones.

This plant prefers moist, acidic, well-drained, peaty soil in full...

(Blueray Blueberry, Northern Highbush Blueberry)

The vigorous 'Blueray' is a compact, vigorous, heat-tolerant cultivar that ripens its relatively large berries midway through the highbush blueberry fruiting season. Highbush blueberry is a medium-sized deciduous shrub native to eastern North America and valued both as a culinary and an ornamental plant.

In late spring, dainty, bell-shaped flowers grow in clusters at the ends of the many branches. These are followed from early summer (for early-fruiting cultivars) to midsummer (for late-season...
