According to some, Marionberries are considered to be the perfect berry, delicately balancing between sweetness and acidity. It is a hybrid fruit, developed by crossing a Chehalem blackberry with an olallieberry, another blackberry cultivar, although one customer more colorfully describing the flavor as "if a raspberry got together with a blackberry, the marionberry would be their kid." Less tolerant of transport, these berries don't travel well outside the Pacific Northwest and the season is only a short 4 weeks. Get them while you can!
We will definitely go full in at next year's crop!
