Giant berries - Yum!

Just look at the size these marionberries (just called blackberries in South Carolina, but being from Oregon I know the difference).

I wish I could say we grew these. We've started some raspberries and boysenberries and regular blackberries but they really won't produce until next year. Michael was off with another church member who wanted to stop and get some peaches for his daughter. He saw these for sale. They were normally $12 a gallon but had a buy 1 get 1 free deal so he brought home two. I took one look at them and my mouth watered remembering how good marionberry cobbler is in Oregon! We had to go back and get more so Saturday Michael and I spent the day making 10 pints of marionberry jam and freezing 14 quarts and of course making a huge maionberry cobbler (which is already gone)! Boy it was a good as I remembered them in Oregon. Now Michael is ready to add a row of Marionberry plants if we can find some!

  2. My goodness, those are huge! I always wondered what marionberries were! I live in Oregon and hear about them all the time, but I guess I never really new what they were!
