Default Blackberries - Fianal tally

I have finally planted all my blackberries. I now have 10 Kiowa, 3 Apache, 3 Natchez and 3 Ouchita. That should give me enough berries in a few years to make a couple batches of wine.

I am officially jealous.

Are the non Kiowa varieties for some sort of recipe development?

The Kiowa (thorny) should be coon proof. I have a big coon problem. The Apache, Ouachita and Natchez (thornless) are because I just wanted to try some thornless varieties in a separate bed I made. My brother has Arapaho, and these are rated better than that variety. Plus, where they are planted I can easily make them coon proof.
