Default loganberry, tayberry & boysenberry

Three years ago, I planted a loganberry, expecting its fruit to be as big and flavoursome as the ones that grew in the garden where I grew up. I was disappointed. So I'd like to replace it with something similar that bears big, juicy, distinctive and flavoursome fruit.

A friend suggested I try a tayberry or boysenberry. Which one tends to produce the biggest, juiciest, tastiest fruit, with a unique flavour?

Many thanks,
Al

Funny enough we planted a Thornless Loganberry and Boysenberry a few
years ago. The Loganberry hardly fruited and they were not as I
remembered them from my youth either. The boysenberry was a total thug,
seeded everywhere (birds?) too and again hardly fruited well. Both out
now.
Neighbour had a Tayberry and it had superb fruit and lots of them, it
also never got thuggish and is easy to train. I'd recommend the
Tayberry.

Very interesting and very helpful, Bob. Thank you. I reckon I'll go with the Tayberry!
