Blackberries are a hearty vine.  Their thorns protect them from wildlife that would otherwise eat their fruit.  However, one of the recent hybrids, the Triple Crown, is thornless. 

With or without modern variations though, the blackberry has been a popular plant for centuries.  The Greeks and Romans both used them for medicinal purposes, however, popular English folklore prohibits the eating of blackberries after the 29th of September.  It’s said that on that day, St. Michaelmas, the devil comes by and tramples on the blackberries making them inedible.  The legend probably developed because blackberries are in season from May to August, and by late September the berries have molded or rotted on the vines.
