Plant Spotlight: Marionberries
Large, juicy delicious fruit that cannot be missed! While these fruits can be found at farmer’s markets around Oregon and Washington, those of you outside of Oregon may not have heard of our darling Marionberry. But it’s too delicious to keep to ourselves! That’s why we sell Marionberry plants nationwide so everyone can share these amazing berries.
This plant was developed in Western Washington and Oregon and is named after Marion County in Oregon. Marionberries are similar to blackberries only larger and brighter in color. They produce big, bright black, exceptionally flavored fruit that can be eaten fresh or turned into jams and desserts. Marionberry vines are vigorous, thorny plants with strong canes and high production. Fruit ripens in July in most areas. Marionberries are hardy in zones 6-9.
