Are You a Fan of Blackberries?

I just thought I'd post a few pictures of the two different types of blackberries that we have on the property. The first is a thornless upright cane type called Apache. It is a pretty plant and looks to be easy to contain. I don't know how it tastes yet, we'll have to wait a little bit longer. They must be yummy look at this Consperse Stink Bug taking a bite or more appropriately a sip.
Here are some more pictures of the Apache Blackberry

The other variety of blackberry that we have is called Navajo. It is a thornless vining variety and seems to sucker and spread more rapidly than Apache. It might be a good choice if you want a really big productive vine. The Navajo variety is supposed to be super sweet and tastes really good. I'll get to try it soon.

Here are some pictures of the Navajo Blackberry.
