After harvesting, cut 2 year old branches to ground level. Healthy loganberries will bear for ten to fifteen years or more.


Pick when ripe. Loganberries do not ripen all at once, and should be picked weekly through the harvest season.


Net to prevent bird damage. Plant a thornless variety to take the pain out of harvesting. In Australia fruit fly are a pest of loganberries, make sure to take appropriate control measures in areas where they are present. It is important to dispose of any infected fruit and fruit has fallen to the ground by placing them in a sealed plastic bag in the sun for at least 7 days to kill the eggs and larvae. Do not compost fruit as this will lead to the fruit fly completing their life cycle and lead to the problem recurring.
