Is it possible to get fresh boysenberries around here? I remember eating boysenberry yogurt as a kid, but it recently occurred to me that I don't think I've ever eaten or seen a fresh one...

    I would check with Hamilton Orchards. I found some research they did and it said they thought Boysenberries might be a possible addition to their crops.

    I'll ask them next week at Copley or City Hall.

    I didn't find them on the sites that give a calendar of local crops.

      I would check out the local farmers markets. I remember seeing them as a kid at Lee's farm market in Wayland, but that place is long, long gone. Last year one of the stands at the waltham farm market had a number of unusual berries, but I don't specifically remember boysenberries.
