Rubus ursinus

There is nothing quite as unique as a boysenberry, offering up both the dark color and syrupy sweetness of a blackberry with the tart richness of a raspberry running through the background. A true culinary delicacy and prized ingredient for preserves, desserts, and sauces to accompany grilled or roasted meat. Self-pollinating.

1) Dig a hole two times the width of the root ball, gently remove packing material from root ball.
2) Set root ball in hole, making top even with ground level, fill in around root ball with soil mix to ground level, water to settle mix and add more soil if needed.
3) Form a water basin around the plant with a mound of soil, water once again filling the water basin.
4) Add a 1/4" layer of mulch to conserve moisture and water thoroughly once to two times weekly until plant is established.
