Developing and pollinated thornless boysenberries in Southern California
Photo of thornless boysenberries still maturing. I predict these will be ready in May. I bought the original plant around two years from a local nursery. Last year's crop was not large. This year's crop should be substantially more, as long as the birds stay away. As soon as I harvest berries from a cane, I plan to cut it back to allow for next year's growth.
Family Rosaceae, Rubus ursinus
