One of the most unique cane berries, Tayberry is a cross of ‘Aurora’ blackberry and a very large fruited tetraploid raspberry selected by Derek Jennings of Scotland. Though its often thought of as an improvement of the Loganberry, the Tayberry has a flavor profile that is uniquely its own. Berries are very fragile when perfectly ripe so you’ll not often see them available in stores or farmers markets, making the Tayberry the perfect berry to grow at home. Makes great preserves or toppings for ice cream and yogurt!
