Friday Feelz – Boysenberry
Boysenberries were names after the farmer who first started growing these sweet-tart flavor berries, Rudolph Boysen.
In the In the early 1920s, Boysen had abandoned his growing experiments and sold his farm. Bewildered by this news, George M. Darrow of the USDA and California berry farmer, Walter Knott headed out to Boysen’s old farm, on which they found several frail vines surviving in a field choked with weeds. They moved the vines to Knott’s farm in Buena Park, California, where he nurtured them back to fruit-bearing health. Walter Knott was the first to commercially cultivate the berry in Southern California. He began selling the berries at his farm stand in 1932 and soon noticed that people kept returning to buy the large, tasty berries. When asked what they were called, Knott said, “Boysenberries,” after their originator. His family’s small restaurant and pie business eventually grew into Knott’s Berry Farm. As the berry’s popularity grew, Mrs. Knott began making preserves, which ultimately made Knott’s Berry Farm famous.
This weeks Friday Feelz playlist has a boysenberry vibe due to a mixture of sweet and soothing sounds combined with sour and tart drops that make you go “Ooooooooooooo” (picture the sour face).
