Discovered a thornless raspberry in my garden.
I was studying the new seedling raspberry plants that popped up in a container from birds eating the raspberries. I noticed what seems like two thornless raspberry seedlings. I am not exactly sure what the seedlings were crossed with but the majority of my garden was Caroline Raspberry with a smaller section of Anne, and Autumn Bliss. I also have blackberries and Boysenberry.
I am going to keep a close watch on the plants to see how they perform. Ultimately the harvest quality of fruit and amount will determine if its worth keeping the raspberry around.
Just wanted to know if Thornless trait in raspberries is rare or pretty common occurrence?
