The thornless raspberry here in the NW is the Thimbleberry. It doesn't
cross readily with cultivated species anyway. Though the flavor
varies with where the plants grow and with individual selections.
Fruit aside, the plant is often used as an ornamental as the large
leaves and large white blossoms are quite attractive, and it will grow
in partial shade.

Did it taste good, or was it rather bland? Red/black? In
Oregon/Washington they have berries which grow wild and resemble a
raspberry, but the flavor leads a lot to be desired. If you found
something, tasty, hardy, and disease free or highly resistant, then
perhaps you have come across something of value. Have you considered
propagating it in your garden?
