Loganberry Thornless not Thornless

    1 responses

daviesadamjohn1 starts with ...
I have a very weird phenomenon where one of my Loganberry canes as suddenly become thorny. The whole plant is thornless including this cane, its side shoots etc EXCEPT for after this side shoot pictured both the side shoot and the main cane are thorny all the way to the growing tip. There are no other thorns on the plant. What is going on?

Mate,

This article has the answers.

Your tree is not genetically thornless, it is periclinically thornless instead.

Damage to branch will mean the thornly layer grows thru and shoot out the thorns.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, mate!
