Interpretive Summary: Multiple variants of ‘Boysen’ have been horticulturally recognized since the genotype was introduced in 1935. An improved DNA fingerprinting set was applied to ‘Boysen’ and ‘Logan’ variants and their putative parents obtained from private growers and commercial nurseries. A ‘Boysen’ genotype likely to be from the original clone was identified. ‘Boysen’ appears to have resulted from ‘Logan’ x ‘Austin Mayes’. ‘Lucretia’ is not a parent. Continuing work will establish pedigree or relational links for wild and cultivated blackberries.

Technical Abstract: Multiple variants of Rubus hybr. ‘Boysen’ have been horticulturally recognized since the genotype was introduced in 1935. An improved 8-SSR DNA fingerprinting set was applied to ‘Boysen’ and ‘Logan’ variants and their putative parents obtained from private growers and commercial nurseries. A ‘Boysen’ genotype likely to be from the original clone was identified. ‘Boysen’ appears to have resulted from ‘Logan’ x ‘Austin Mayes’. ‘Lucretia’ is not a parent. Continuing work will establish pedigree or relational links for wild and cultivated blackberries.
