Bramble plant (Rubus loganobaccus) of the rose family.

It originated in Santa Cruz, Calif., in 1881, apparently as a natural hybrid between the wild blackberry of the Pacific coast and the red raspberry. It is grown in large quantities in Oregon and Washington and is cultivated in Britain and Tasmania. The loganberry is a vigorous, nearly trailing, blackberry-like plant with compound leaves and prickly canes. Its wine-red, tart berries are canned, frozen, used in preserves or pies, or made into wine.

plant
 (Rubus loganobaccus), bramble fruit of the family Rosaceae that originated in the United States, at Santa Cruz, Calif., in 1881. Raised from seed, it is thought to be a hybrid between the wild blackberry of the Pacific coast and the red raspberry. It is grown in large quantities in Oregon and Washington and also cultivated in England and Tasmania. The loganberry, or Logan, is a vigorous, nearly trailing, blackberry-like plant with compound leaves of three to five leaflets and prickly canes. Its deep, wine-red, tart, high-flavoured berries separate from the stem as do blackberries. The fruit is canned, frozen for preserve or pie stock, or made into wine.
