Tayberry is a cultivated fruiting shrub in the genus Rubus of the family Roasaceae. First bred in 1962 from a cross between a Blackberry and a red Raspberry. The berry is larger and sweeter, and more aromatic than that of the Loganberry, but is bot a widely grown crop because of the difficulty of picking it. Tayberries do not pick easily by hand and cannot be machine-harvested.

Tayberries can be eaten raw, or make into jams and jellies. Tayberries are usually harvested from early July to mid-August. The name Tayberry is named after the River Tay in Scotland.
