The youngberry is a complex hybrid between three different berry species from the genus Rubus: raspberry, blackberry, and dewberry of the Rose family.[1] The berries of the plant are eaten fresh or used to make juice, jam, and in recipes.

The youngberry was created in the early 20th century by B.M. Young in Louisiana by crossing the "Phenomenal" blackberry–raspberry hybrid with the "Mayes" dewberry.[1] It is similar to the Loganberry, "nectarberry", and Boysenberry in shape, color, and flavor.[1][2] Youngberries can be grown in fertile clay soils.[3] They are cultivated on small farms and home gardens in Oregon, Australia, and New Zealand.[2][3][4]
