Olallie Blackberry Plant

  • Black Logan x Young
  • Tested as Oregon 609

Olallie Blackberry is a thorny, floricane fruiting, trailing blackberry suited for the processing market.  It has large fruit that is slightly longer and skinnier than Boysen.  Flavor is good, but peak quality is reached only at full maturity.  Winter chilling requirements are less than Boysen, so it is suited for more southern areas of California.
