The Ollalieberry has the initial appearance of an elongated blackberry, its skin tone a glossy onyx with ruby highlights. Like its parent blackberry, it does not have a hollow center, rather its stem end is closed as it remains intact when picked. The Ollalieberry is balanced in flavor, both sweet and perfectly tart, tender and juicy. As it is with most berries, its coloring will stain upon touching. The Ollalieberry's fragility when ripe make for a shortened shelf-life.
The season for the Ollalieberry is very short, they are available for a few weeks in late spring.
The Ollalieberry is an aggregate fruit of genus Rubus, within the Rosaceae family. It has a battery of ancestors that contribute to its complex origins, growing abilities and characteristics. It is a cross between a blackberry a Loganberry and a Youngberry, of which both the Loganberry and the Youngberry are hybrids that were developed by berries that were cross-pollination with raspberries. The Ollalieberry is no ordinary berry, rather a unique bramble creating a whole better than the sum of its parts.
