Look out for these ones;

Boysenberry
Sunshine Blue (I think will perform better in a desert climate with higher PH water)
Sweet Crisp
Gem
Jewel
Bababerry (Los angeles area selection, suppose to withstand heat, dry, and low chill better then others).
Grow mainly fruits, vegetables, and herbs.

I found a source in Italy for Boysenberry, I heard growing it from a cutting is very easy , What do you think ?. do also recommend obtaining Loganberry ?.


Thanks

Boysenberry is your best bet for heat tolerance (I think), it does easily root. Try damp coir or peat moss after dipping in rooting hormone. I have not tried Loganberry, similar to boysenberry I hear.

Thanks Again NullZero.

I'll get Loganberry, Tayberry and Boysenberry cuttings and I'll report back in a few weeks from now.

Tayberry will not do well for you, and neither will Loganberry. I can only suggest people recommended these have never tried to grow them in the subtropics.

I have. Basically what you'll get is extremely poor fruit set and an endless battle with leaf fungus.

There is only one Rubus  that does well in hot climates, and that is youngberry. Masses of berries every season.

I was trying to think of the name of that popular berry hybrid that is grown in Aussie (originally when I posted). Thanks for the post, I got to remember that youngberry is a good heat tolerant rubus sp. cross. I know for a fact boysenberry can handle 100 degree heat of Orange County, CA , without slowing it down. However I am unsure of its ability to tolerant hot and humid at the same time. I would hope its resistance to humid fungal issues is decent.

I wish I can get youngberry.cuttings but, I'm already having a hard time finding common hybrid berries like taberry or boysenberry.

You are right about fungal attacks, I think I should grow them in pots and bring them inside in summer.

I'm going to experiment with different types of berries and see what Happens.

Thanks Starling  ;)

Actually there is one Rubus that will do better for you than any other, and that is the native Australian raspberry, or Atherton Raspberry. Fruit are delicious ( I prefer them to regular raspberry) and their natural environment is the tropics.

A few days ago, i contacted a seller from Australia, asking for youngberry cuttings, But for unknown reason he refused to send them aboard. I really doubt I'll get these "Australian" berries any time soon.

Thanks for the help  ;) ;)
