Answer: Don't rule out blackberries - there are thornless kinds. If the fruits look just like blackberries but the only difference is that there are no thorns on the canes, they're probably Triple Crown Thornless blackberries (these are very popular in the Pacific Northwest). Waldo is another thornless cultivar. Harvest as you would any blackberry - pull the fruit from the vine. It isn't necessary to cut it, or to leave the cap or stem attached. You might take samples to your local Cooperative Extension office for positive identification of your berry vine. Enjoy your berries!
