I bought this several years ago described as 'dwarf' groundcover. It's anything but that. It throws canes 4-5 ft. long. It suckers here and there and is completely thornless. The berries are pretty good and are about as big around as a quarter and black.
Help?

Thornless blackberry? Are the berries hollow or filled when you pick them?

I guess they are what you would call 'filled'. Also have seeds. Pretty good berry. I would love to get a proper name so I can trade/sell. And just know what I have. It's a keeper.

Do the berries look like blackberries?

They might be Dewberries.

True, here is what the dewberry stem looks like:



The plant in question here appears to be a blackberry.

Yep. Stems are smooth with nary a thorn to be found.
I suppose it's futile to expect to find variety name, huh?
