Will these cross with triple crown blackberries when planted within ten feet?
Debra W on Jan 22, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It wouldn't affect the fruit even if they did. Most blackberry plants and raspberry plants are self-pollinating and don't require "help" in order to be fruitful. Their pollen can be cross-compatible, since the plants are related, which is how hybrids like loganberry and boysenberry came to be, but you'd have to be more hands-on and plant the seeds to see what comes of the cross.

Strong canes, lots of berries, tastes great and no thorns!
As far as spineless red raspberries, Joan J is the real deal. I planted a set of three of these bare root canes two years ago and was so pleased that I added two more sets of 3 last spring. They are doing great on the south side of my house in direct sun. I'm in zone 6a in NW MO. I barely fertilized and barely use any support for the canes as they really like to grow upright until the berries set on. Truly spineless canes means I can turn the kids loose picking them with no complaints. The stout canes don't bend to touch the ground and produce new plants, but I still got additional canes from root suckers sprouting between where I planted. Totally recommend!
