The Loganberry LY59 (Rubus × loganobaccus) is an esaploid hybrid produced by the pollination of a blackberry plant ‘Aughinbaugh’ (Rubus ursinus) and a red raspberry raspberry (Rubus idaeus).
Plant and fruit resemble more in love than raspberry, but the color of the fruit is a dark red, rather than black as the blackberry.
The LOGANBERRY LY59 is thorn.
The fruit is large (3 / 4gr), long up to 4cm, conical-elongated; of purple red-purple color sometimes violet, tasty, sweet, very aromatic.
The LOGANBERRY LY59 is rich in beneficial properties:
ANTOCIAN: They are natural antioxidants that protect against brain aging through the maintenance of healthy brain cells. This leads to more protection against degenerative brain disorders such as Alzheimer’s.
VITAMIN C: It can be one of the most useful nutrients that humans need to take. Vitamin C increases the protection offered by the immune system, and can also prevent cardiovascular disease;
VITAMIN K: known to decrease the risk of thickened arteries and osteoporosis. It has also been shown to reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s disease, kidney stones and to have a positive effect on diabetes prevention. Vitamin K is a vital vitamin for maintaining your health.
FOOD FIBER: known to prevent the formation of gallstones and kidney stones. It also helps in digestion and can reduce or even eliminate many digestive problems, such as diarrhea and constipation.
It was accidentally created in 1881 in Santa Cruz, California by American Judge and Horticulturist James Harvey Logan (1841-1928). Logan was dissatisfied with the existing varieties of sea and sought, crossing two varieties of more, a superior cultivar. It happened to plant them alongside the plants of an old red raspberry variety ‘Red of Antwerp’, each of which flowered and fruited together. The two blackberry cultivars involved in these experiments were probably ‘Aughinbaugh’ and ‘Texas Early’ (a Rubus Velox cultivar), which were two of the three varieties that Logan had planted in his garden that year.
Loganberry was introduced to Europe in 1897.
In 1933 a new LOGANBERRY LY654 brand-new Loganberry cultivar was developed.
It prefers sunny areas, it fits well in all types of terrain.
The maturation of the LOGANBERRY LY59 is medium-late, continues from July to September.
