soooo....we have two beds of berry plants from the previous owners<br><br>
I thought they were both raspberries...<br><br>
well...one bed is 99% for sure raspberries<br><br><a href="http://bp3.blogger.com/_kmmoDnhWb7c/SGR3Nzi2OkI/AAAAAAAAC_c/ZnXTocO2noE/s1600-h/berries1.jpg" target="_blank">http://bp3.blogger.com/_kmmoDnhWb7c/...h/berries1.jpg</a><br><br>
but the other bed (right NEXT to the other) is sooo much further behind in development...I dont think its the same type of berry!!<br><br>
Any Guesses??<br><a href="http://bp3.blogger.com/_kmmoDnhWb7c/SGR3N1Ku1PI/AAAAAAAAC_k/syetTh3z_aI/s1600-h/berries2.jpg" target="_blank">http://bp3.blogger.com/_kmmoDnhWb7c/...h/berries2.jpg</a><br><br>
they havent even flowered open yet...<br>
VERY prickly...way more thorns than the other plot.<br>
but the leaves are almost identical<br>
and stalks are growing at about the same rate/height

Sounds like black berrys... mine are so far behind my neighbors raspberries... He offered me a bunch of plants and I have been clearing space on the side yard- pulling out a lot of little trees and weeds and stuff, to plant them in. I just hope they get enough sun. I know they do "ok" in partial shade (had some growing that way at my old house) but they really thrive and produce if they get more sun. Could your other group be more in the shade?

Hmmm, I have no idea! I am pretty sure there are different harvest times for different varieities (like early tomatoes and late tomatoes).<br><br>
All I have in my yard is raspberries, which I watch obsessively for ripening <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">.<br><br>
I am excited for you to find out and come tell us! Mmmm, maybe they will be those super yummy yellow raspberries.

Doh! I am too late! I was thinking that they might be blackberries or a yellow raspberry....so I am going to go with Marionberry.<br><br>

well, what people here call "blackberries" are really black raspberries-and that picture doesnt look like my blackberries do. But maybe its a different breed? Black raspberries are wild here.

Could be blackberries, black or gold or fall-bearing raspberries. Or marionberry or tayberry. My blackberry canes are just babies though (and thornless, yay!) so I haven't seen how they look at the end of the season.

the surprise berry plot does get a tad bit more shade than the other...<br><br>
i was thinking blackberries possibly too...cause they do grow wild in abundance all over oregon.<br><br>
but it seems like those in the wild are not growing straight up...but curving over in big bramble patches.<br><br>
mine are going straight up just like the other plot of raspberries<br><br>
it would be VERY cool if they were those golden raspberries!<br><br>
I'll be sure to come back and post and report what they end up being when they are ripe!!!

I know Mama Poot. The people around here call every wild berry a "huckleberry". Which, of course, they are NOT. It drives me crazy, but eh, what are you going to do? I have to learn not to give people lectures on berries/fruit and the differences... I see their eyes just glaze over... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
I was blogging about this the other day as a matter of fact!

I just saw golden raspberries for sale at the grocery store yesterday and they were $5 for a really tiny small square container...<br><br>
so now I am hoping that's what mine are <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">
