Loganberries originated in Santa Cruz, California, in the backyard of Judge James H. Logan in the late 1800s and was named in his honor. Loganberries are produced on semi-erect plants that grow horizontally when compared to the erect habit of most Blackberries. In the United States, Oregon is the main producer of loganberries.

Plump, brightly colored and generally uniform in size, the reddish-purple loganberry's flavor is similar to that of a Raspberry but is somewhat sharper and slightly acidic. Loganberries tastes like a cross between a Raspberry and a Blackberry.
