What are Loganberries?

Loganberries are hybrid fruits grown initially in California in the late 1800’s. While they may seem like a mysterious fruit, they are actually a combination of three different kinds of berries: blackberries, raspberries, and a wild variety of raspberry known as the logan. Even though they look and taste like large, dark red raspberries, their true nature lies in the combination of their parents’ lineage.

Loganberries have a distinct oblong shape caused by the intersection between its blackberry, raspberry, and wild parents. They range in color from bright purplish-red to dark, deep red. The larger specimens tend to have a blackhead on one end, giving them a more intense color throughout.

In terms of flavor, the taste of loganberry is more tart than its blackberry and raspberry parents. The flavor is a blend of sweet and tart, reminiscence of a pineapple. The texture can vary from soft and juicy to hard and firm.

Nutritionally, Loganberries are great sources of vitamins and minerals, including Vitamin C, Vitamin A, manganese, potassium, iron and dietary fiber. They are low in calories and fat, and a 100-gram serving of Loganberries provides approximately 62 calories.

In terms of usage, Loganberries are often used in baking and desserts. They make delicious jams, juices, syrups, and other preserves, or they can be eaten alone out of hand. When baked or cooked, they add a unique sweet-tart flavor to cakes, pies, tarts, muffins, and other desserts. Loganberries are also an excellent accompaniment to dairy products such as ice cream and yogurt.

These wildberries can also be found in a variety of cosmetic treatments. They can be made into face scrubs, exfoliants, masks, and more. This is due to the high levels of beneficial acids, vitamins, and minerals that are found in the berry’s pulp.

Loganberries can be found fresh or dried through most grocery stores, farmers’ markets, or online vendors. As most fruits, they are best when freshly picked, but they can be enjoyed even when purchased from a store. When buying them in stores, look for the fruits that have a vibrant and deep red color, and those that are slightly soft to touch, but have no bruises.

To maximize the shelf-life of Loganberries, store them in the refrigerator for a few days and always keep them tightly sealed, as air exposure will cause them to quickly lose their freshness. To freeze them for longer periods, spread out the berries on a baking sheet and place in the freezer, but only for a few hours. Once the berries freeze, quickly transfer them to an airtight container and back to the freezer.

Loganberries are definitely an interesting and unique fruit that offer a unique flavor. If you are looking to add some special sweetness to your favorite dishes, or if you wish to use them in cosmetics, Loganberries are one of the most interesting fruits that you should try.
