Mystery bush

August 12, 2013 by dave   Comments (6)

One of our ladies planted a fruit area a couple of years ago and the labels have erased and she does not know what this bush is wondered if you could help identify it.

The leaves look like a member of the blackberry/ raspberry family, but with my limited light bulbs I can't make out the fruit at this resolution size..

Any chanc of a blown up image Dave?

;) I assume you meant " Logonberry" as not heard of a lingonberry. Thanks for that G I will tell her when I see her Sunday been trying to get her to have a look at site given her the address twice.

No Mate - LINGONBERRY - that's the most likely. Lingonberries (Vaccinium vitis-idaea) are to Scandinavians what blackberries are to the British – an abundant wild fruit free for the taking by anyone with a basket! Loganberries are more like raspberries. The loganberry (Rubus × loganobaccus) is actually a hybrid produced from pollination of a blackberry cultivar and a red raspberry (Rubus idaeus).

I hope that helps - but I'm not 100% sure.

Oop's I thought it was a typo and you missed the o and put i.

Well you know what they say you learn something new every day never ever heard the name lingonberry before I will have to do some research and try and educate myself ;)

Thanks for that mate.
