Wow - blackberries don't get that big here...at least not wild ones. I had planted some a few years back that were a thornless variety with great big berries like that - but we had 6 months of constant wetness and they drowned. :(

Whoa that is crazy! We did have a lot of berry bushes. The goats ate them... But my parents have a ton so we'll be over there picking before too long!

Maybe someone planted a bunch before I bought the place? They are not thornless that I can say without a doubt... I consider them wild because I don't take care of them, they are completely on their own.
