[NAFEX] Zone 3 Blackberry

I think a lot of people in northern areas are looking for a hardy
blackberry. I have tried Illini which is winter hardy in Green Bay, WI
and has a fair taste but has monster thorns. Are there any attributes of
your plant which would make it undesirable for growers?

   I've got a zone 3 blackberry that shows real promise that could be
ready
for release in a year or so.  A professor from the local university is
encouraging me onward with it exclaiming that there would be a
tremendous
demand for the plant.  What do you think?
