Rubus fruticosus x idaeus


The Tayberry is a cross between a blackberry and a raspberry. It is known for its large, juicy berries. The plant has long, slender thorns on its stem, and its leaves are dark green and glossy. The flowers are white and have a light, sweet fragrance.

The Tayberry grows to be about 6 feet tall and 3 feet wide. It is a fast-growing plant, but it can be difficult to differentiate from other bramble plants. To cultivate it successfully, the plant prefers well-drained soil and full sun to partial shade. It is winter hardy, so it can withstand cold temperatures.

The berries of the Tayberry are edible and can be eaten fresh or used in jams and jellies. They have a sweet, tart flavor and can be stored in the refrigerator for a few days after harvest.
