Blackberries. Big, luscious and slightly sweet. What could be better than blackberries? How about a blackberry crossed with another blackberry? Ludicrous? No! Pure genius!! Ah yes, we present to you the Marionberry, pure and honest. The alchemist came across this slightly tart slightly sweet little gem during his travels to the land of Oregon where the berry was created. He immediately thought “I should crush the life force out of this little berry and infuse my glorious mead with it!” Blackberries squared. Life is good.
