     I have just read about Thornless Blackberry Plants in a food magazine and wonder if there is any difference in their taste.  In fact I would like to see if anyone has grown them and if so what advice they could offer as to what type is better etc.

    I bought a small plant this year. It has produced one fruit which tasted fine. I am hoping for better next year!

    Yes, I planted a couple of Reubens about four years ago. It is a primocane variety which means it fruits on the current years growth. I did find the very new shoots a bit spiteful with their thorns but as the season progressed the growth became visually thornless. Very good quality and flavoursome fruit.
