The Doyle's Thornless blackberry cultivar is older than most thornless blackberry varieties cultivated today. This is thornless high-productive variety with very big yield. The canes of Doyle's Thornless blackberry are vigorous and trailing, require a cumbersome support. The producer promises yields from 10 to 20 gallons (37-75 liters) per plant in the second and next years after planting. The harvest season is from six to eight weeks. Berries are large and sweet, juicy, taste is similar to wild blackberries. Fruit are in large bunches with 20 to 100 berries in each. Also producer promises high winter-resistance and ability to grow and bear fruit in different regions, even in cold zones.

Reviews of the variety Doyle's Thornless

Review from [DON YELLMAN]

Doyle berries are very good. For a long time we thought they were slightly smaller than the TC that I also grow (and of course later-setting berries are smaller), but last season they seemed just as large when picked in the same part of the season.

I am not one for hair-splitting on the subject of "flavor", which is mostly in the mouth of the consumer. If it looks like a blackberry and tastes like a blackberry, I call it a blackberry. If you close your eyes, you won't be able to tell the difference between a fully ripe Doyle and and an equally ripe Triple Crown. Having said that, I don't think a climate like San Diego is ideal for growing any blackberry.

Review from [OLGA-6B]

I have small yard and want to grow a lot of plants, so have only two blackberry plants. One Triple Crown and just one plant of Doyle's blackberry. When I was buying Doyle's plant and read on their website about its productivity, I thought this is just a sale's pitch. I have two bushes next to each other in very similar conditions (sun ,irrigation, soil, etc). Doyle outperforms Triple Crown for me, they don't even come close. I collect a ~ one gallon of berries from Doyle's plant several times per week for approx 1 month now and it still has plenty of berries in different stage, should be several more weeks of harvest. Triple Crown berries are a little bigger, but the amount is not comparable, probably 3-4 times less or even more and they are almost over by now. They started at approx the same time.

I can't comment on taste of fresh berries, both are kind of sour to my taste. I use both varieties to prepare home preserves. Doyle's (and TC) both make wonderful Jams w/o pectin, just berries and sugar. Tastes absolutely delicious on ice cream or home cheese (like Fromagina Quark, tvorog, etc).
