Thornless Youngberry Rootstock

    9 responses

alicat starts with ...
I have a Thornless Youngberry purchased from Daley's approx. 7 years ago. The Youngberry never thrived and I ignored it, only to find that its thorny rootstock is now laden with delicious dark red, sweet/tart berries. I was hoping someone would know what rootstock Daleys would have used for their thornless youngberry so that I know what i am eating.

I don't know what rootstock Daleys use, someone else will tell you abt it but I'm surprised to know yours never thrived. I bought thornless youngberry from Daleys only 10 days back and it has already put on 15 inch of new growth on main stem in 10 days (I'm not joking). I'm growing mine in pot, Daleys describe it as vigorous.

Was probably my lack of knowledge at the time, grew ok, just never fruited or did particularly well. The berries from the rootstock are very delicious and plentiful though. Look and taste is somewhat like a boysenberry but with so many hybrids it hard to know for sure. Fruits earlier than my blackberry (waldo) and ever-bearing raspberries (autumn bliss)

Alicat, are you sure yours is grafted? Mine doesn't look grafted, its cutting grown.. On internet also I found they are cutting grown... There is no mention of rootstock mentioned on it's Daley's label but for all of my other grafted trees from Daley's, rootstock is mentioned on the label... It could be possible that you got thorny variety instead of thornless variety when you bought it...

Thanks for replying Db. Just saw you message, no internet for last week :(. It definitely grew thornless for first 2 years and I recall at planting, the usual 'Dont plant in ground below the graft' message. Wanting to know what it is so i can care for it appropriately.

Db,

If you have any youngberry canes I'd love one or two, if they are too small to take cuttings from DW about it. I have some other guava seeds you might be interested in also, and some more coming (one in my possession is a large white fleshed variety of china pear, looks a lot better than the daleys variety) as well as some more melons. Have a LOT of the china pear variety.
