The 'Logan' Thorn-less Blackberry is a Blackberry that some believe originated on the west coast (probably in either Oregon or California, but who knows for sure), and is further thought to be natural 'cross' between that west coast Blackberry and an unknown Red Raspberry. Judge J. H. Logan, of Santa Cruz, California, is given credit for the cross, and speculation is that he crossed 'Red Antwerp' (Raspberry) with 'Texas Early' (Blackberry) and the rest, so they say, is history.
The Logan berries are very dark red and are longer in length than most Blackberries. Makes for mighty good eating as well as for exceptional jams and jellies. We have a local friend who makes Logan Blackberry wine for himself and a very, very few "lucky" friends of his.
