The Marionberry variety is a crossover made up of two previous hybrids – the small but delicious Chehalem and the largest highly productive Ollalie. The development of this berry began in 1945, thanks to the efforts of George F. Waldo of the US Department of Agriculture and was tested in the Willamette Valley. Subsequently released for cultivation in the County of Marion in Oregon, under the name of Marionberry in 1956, from which it takes its name.
MARIONBERRY presents thorns.
The fruit is of large size (3 / 4gr) long up to 2,5 / 3cm, conical-elongated shape; has a black color, with a savory and very aromatic taste.
The Loganberry is rich in beneficial properties:
- ANTOCIANI: they are natural antioxidants that protect against brain aging by maintaining healthy brain cells. This leads to greater protection against degenerative brain disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease.
- VITAMIN C: can be one of the most useful nutrients that human beings 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 an essential vitamin for maintaining health.
- FOOD FIBER: known to prevent the formation of gallstones and kidney stones. It also aids in digestion and can reduce or even eliminate many digestive problems, such as diarrhea and constipation.
Marionberry captures the best of both crossed varieties with an intense berry flavor, with high juiciness and high levels of vitamin C, gallic acid, rutin and antioxidants. In addition, Marionberry berries can be frozen beautifully and, when defrosted, retain their shape and consistency.
It prefers sunny areas, fits well in all types of terrain.
The berries ripen during late spring and early summer. The harvesting season is typically between 10 July and 10 August.
