What are some examples of berry bushes with thorns?


Answer by  Chrissie (266)

Gooseberry bushes have thorns, as do most raspberry and blackberry bushes. There are some specially bred thornless varieties and hybrids, however; for instance, the jostaberry, a gooseberry/blackcurrent hybrid, has no thorns.

I have both Raspberry and Boysenberry bushes, and they both have lots of thorns. There is also the Oregon grape, which I believe is only ornamental, which has very large, mean thorns.

Blackberries particularly have sharp thorns; raspberries may have thorns also and rose hips come from thorny plants too (roses). Note that technically, raspberries and blackberries are not berries; they are known as "aggregate fruit".

Red Raspberry canes and Blackberry canes have thorns. However, both of these berries can be tied to a trellis while growing so that the picking is very easy and without scratches and punctures.

Both raspberry and blackberry bushes have thorns, so it is good to be careful when picking these berries. when you are reaching overhead or further into the bushes, clothing is apt to get snagged easily.
