Is there anything that looks like a raspberry but isn't?

I've several varieties of autumn fruiting raspberries and none have thorns....

A few photos - some are cuttings that I took in the autumn just stuck in the ground - only just leafing up. The unpruned just have the flower buds forming.

On further investigations I've found that there's quite a choice out there that don't have any thorns and a few that have the odd one.
Thornless raspberry varieties include:

Autumn treasure
Canby
Glen Lyon
Glen Prosen
Glen Moy
Glen Ample
Glen Doll
Glencoe
Itsaul
Joan J
Mammoth Red
Raspberry Shortcake

And varieties that have just the occasional thorns include:

Cascade Delight
Encore
Latham
Nova
Polka
Tulameen

My raspberries have merged into one - maybe two types - red ones and yellow ones. I prune them all the same way, whether they started out as summer or autumn fruiters. When its brown, cut it down. If its green, leave to be seen. That's it. Easy peasy. Big Grin

I was interested as all that I have are non prickly - Tulameen and polka for me had no thorns. I also had Joan j and autumn treasure. Like VC I couldn't tell you what varieties I have remaining but they are all thornless.

Pros, put us out of suspense, were they raspberries or not?
