[nafex] Re: raspberry sources?

I'll put my 2 cents in for one Spring bearing red raspberry - Canby 
Thornless.  Very good flavor, soft, and effectively no thorns (near 
the base of each cane it does get "razor-stubble" like thorns, but 
they've never bothered me in handling the canes.

I do have to admit to having a fondness for black raspberries over 
reds, but Canby threatens that fondness every year.

I planted "Goldie" over a year ago, though I don't have much 
experience w/ it, I like it too.
