#1. The Boysenberry was born in Buena Park
In 1926, Walter Knott and his close friend Rudolph Boysen created the Boysenberry – a hybrid of the Loganberry, blackberry and raspberry. The boysenberry was first sold at his roadside fruit stand which eventually grew to a restaurant that sold his wife Cordelia's famous fried chicken and later, America’s first theme park – Knott’s Berry Farm. Today, Knott’s honors their storied past with their annual Boysenberry Festival which features Boysenberry treats, food and beverages. This seasonal event can be enjoyed in late spring every year.
